Opening of the Canadian Language Museum's new exhibit

The Canadian Language Museum is pleased to present its new exhibition:

Le français au Canada

Canada is not only the second largest country in the world, it is also the country with the largest number of native French speakers after France. From coast to coast, French plays an important role in the linguistic landscape of Canada, perpetuating a language whose North American origins are nearly four centuries old. We invite you to discover the dynamic history and different dialects of Canadian French that have shaped contemporary Francophone communities across Canada.
 
Le Canada n’est pas seulement le deuxième plus grand pays au monde, c’est aussi le pays qui compte le plus grand nombre de francophones natifs après la France ! D’un océan à l’autre, le français joue un rôle important dans le paysage linguistique du pays, en particulier dans l’est, où il est implanté depuis près de quatre siècles. Nous vous invitons à découvrir l’histoire des différentes communautés francophones au pays, ainsi que les particularités de leur langue.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is not required. For further information, please contact the Canadian Language Museum.
