Les Rendez-vous de la Francophonie (RVF) is part of the cultural events surrounding the Journée Internationale de la Francophonie (March 20), which is organized every year in Canada to promote the French language in all its forms!
The 22nd annual Rendez-vous de la Francophonie will be held in 2020 from March 1 to 31! It’s an initiative of the Canadian Foundation for Cross-Cultural Dialogue, whose mandate is to promote dialogue and forge closer ties between the Francophone and Acadian communities and all other communities in Canada.
The RVF is a time for Canada’s Francophonie to celebrate! Hundreds of activities take place across Canada: community gatherings, multicultural meetings, ceremonies, performances, film screenings, word games, contests, educational activities—in short, a whole series of events that provide an excuse for celebrating.
By creating a directory of activities organized by Francophones and Francophiles across the country, the RVF conveys the tremendous energy of these communities and regions. By promoting these celebrations through the pan‑Canadian event calendar, the RVF invites you to join the party.
