Are you a parent looking to offer your child all the benefits of a dual-language education? You might feel a little overwhelmed with questions and uncertainties about French-second-language, or FSL, education. Even if you’ve already made the decision to enrol your child in an FSL program, you might be at a loss as to how you can help him or her succeed if you don’t speak French yourself.

CPF is here to help. We have many informative pamphlets and brochures that can help you pick the right program for the right child; and for parents whose children are already studying FSL, we have resources that can help you help your kids. We are primarily, first and foremost, a parent-oriented organization, so we are here for you and your family every step of the way.
