The “Francophonie” in Coquitlam is in Maillardville! The Francophone Centre provides different resources and practical services in French for all Francophones and Francophiles, adults and children.
This calendar features all the SFM educational, social and cultural events.
Do you want to learn or perfect your French? Your Francophone Center in Maillardville has what you need!
To ensure the continuity of our community activities, strong partnerships are essential.
At the Centre Francophone de Maillardville, you will find several resources for Francophone newcomers such as bilingual opportunities in the province.
FLAUNT YOUR FRENCHNESS
Flaunt your Frenchness encourages you to celebrate all that is French in you! Those little words like déja-vu, your easy sense of fashion, your unending love for cheese and wine, your “joie de vivre” or it could simply be your passion for the Montreal Canadians even when the Canucks are stepping on the ice.
FESTIVAL DU BOIS
The Festival du Bois is the largest francophone event west of the Rockies. The festival features exceptional artists such as De Temps Antan, Vishten and Yves Lambert while sharing the community’s Joie de vivre, through great food and its unique hospitality. Take part of the upcoming Festival du Bois and join this affordable family-friendly event.
GEOCACHING IN MAILLARDVILLE
It’s an unique treasure hunt and a voyage through Maillardville’s history – all in one!
August 11, 2016
Challenge yourself on August 11th with Maillardville’s bilngual Geocaching adventure and discover the history of this Francophone area!
Geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunting game using a GPS application found on cellular phones. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.
The SFM invites you to join them on August 11th at 12 :30 p.m. in Mackin Park to discover the history of Maillardville while being guided through each of the twelve caches.
The first fifty people to particpate will recieve a t-shirt or a re-usable bag with the image of the public art piece designed by Sylvie Roussel-Janssens representing the compass of Maillardville.
