The Office of Francophone and Francophile Affairs
The Office of Francophone and Francophile Affairs (also known as OFFA) is an administrative entity of Simon Fraser University that works in collaboration with the faculties and departments to support the development, coordination, and promotion of programs and courses taught in French. At OFFA, we are also committed to contributing to the growth and vitality of the Francophonie by establishing strong ties with the community.
Whether you are a Francophone or a Francophile, if you have an interest in the French language and Francophone cultures, we welcome you to OFFA and SFU!
OFFA in Brief
|We are a team of 10 employees whose main working language is French.|
|OFFA was founded in 2004, thanks to the mobilization of many community, university and government stakeholders dedicated to promoting French as Canada's other official language.|
|Since our inception, we have contributed to the post-secondary education in French in a minority setting of nearly 4,500 students, including more than 250 active students*.
*As of June 2020
Every year, we organize free activities that allow more than 2,000 people to share cultural or academic experiences in French.
|We are fortunate to be collaborating with more than 60 community and university partners at the provincial, national and international levels.|
