|Rendez-vous de la Francophonie is an annual celebration of Canada's membership in the Francophonie and promotes the French language and its numerous cultural expressions. It runs March 6- 27 in communities across Canada. Check out the project website.
La Francophonie is an international organization representing countries and regions where French is the first or customary language and/or where a significant proportion of the population are Francophones and/or where there is a notable affiliation with French culture. Canada is one of its 57 member states. A full list of all members and observers can be found here. The head of the organization is former Canadian Governor General, MichaŽlle Jean.|
