Who We Are

Our organization was founded as the Fédération des francophones hors-Québec (the Federation of francophones outside Quebec) in 1975 and renamed the Fédération des communautés francophones et acadienne du Canada (the Federation of Francophone and Acadian communities of Canada) in 1991. Its objective is to serve as the national and international voice of more than 2.6 million French-speaking Canadians living in nine provinces and three territories.

The FCFA consists of 20 members: 12 provincial and territorial associations representing Francophone interests, as well as 8 national organizations representing different sectors of activity and development (culture, justice, community media, health care, seniors, youth, women, parents and child care services). We are also the lead organization in the Francophone and Acadian communities' consultation network. In this role, we coordinate the Forum of Leaders - a group of 43 organizations committed to working together to implement a vision of our communities' future adopted at the Sommet des communautés francophones et acadiennes (Francophone and Acadian Communities' Summit) in 2007.

Our Vision

The FCFA subscribes to the vision adopted at the Sommet in 2007: "In 2017, people living in Canada's Francophone and Acadian communities thrive in their French-speaking environments. They have the ability to act collectively on every aspect of their development, thereby contributing to Canada's growth."

This assertive and optimistic statement speaks eloquently to the determination of French-speaking Canadians everywhere to take charge of their development and their future.

Our Mission

The FCFA's mission is to serve as an active, involved and inclusive voice for Canada's Francophone and Acadian communities at the national level. Our organization is committed to promoting linguistic duality, supporting the ability of Canadians everywhere to live in French, and fostering the full participation of French-speaking citizens to Canada's development.

Our Values

The FCFA promotes openness, diversity, cross-cultural dialogue and civic involvement. We envision communities where all citizens who choose to live and communicate in French, regardless of their mother tongue and place of origine, work together for the development and benefit of their neighbourhood, their city and Canada as a whole.

Our Objectives

Throughout its activities, the FCFA aims to act as an agent of change in:

  • Promoting the vitality and diversity of Canada's Francophone and Acadian communities, both nationally and internationally;
  • Promoting the French presence and linguistic duality throughout the country;
  • Developing a sense of belonging to the French language and culture;
  • Defending the rights of French-speaking Canadians living in a minority situation;
  • Strengthening ties between French-speaking Canadians and other groups in Canadian society;
  • Supporting its members in the achievement of their mandate, for the good of all Francophones and Canadian society as a whole.
