The provincial Concours d’art oratoire scheduled for April 25 at Mount Saint Vincent University has been cancelled as a precaution to help limit the spread of COVID-19.  At this time, the NS Education and Early Childhood Development has suspended all extra-curricular activities in the public school system until the end of April.  Our partner, Mount Saint Vincent University also supports the cancellation.

Throughout this situation, the safety and well-being of our community members and employees continues to be our number one priority. CPF Nova Scotia will monitor recommendations from the Government of Nova Scotia and Canadian Public Health Agency of Canada to determine if any further cancellations or modifications to our programming are required.

Concours d’art oratoire is Canada’s largest annual French-language public speaking competition involving over a 100,000 students across Canada every year, and thousands of dollars worth of prizes.

The aims of this public speaking contest are to stimulate the interest of students learning French, to improve their oral skills, and to give them experience speaking in public.

This event is organized by Canadian Parents for French (CPF), who has worked together with parents and school staff since 1983 to organize school, district and provincial-level competitions.

Concours is open to French Second Language (FSL) and Francophone students from grades five through twelve who are studying Core French, Integrated French, Intensive French, French immersion (Early, Middle or Late) or French First Language (CSAP), or studying in at a CAIS school (Canadian Association of Independent Schools).
