On behalf of the Office of Francophone and Francophile Affairs, allow me to welcome you to campus, and to SFU’s French Hub!
The entire OFFA team is delighted to greet you and our sincere hope is that your time at SFU will be full of new discoveries on both academic and personal fronts. Post-secondary education in French in B.C. is an advantage and an asset that will serve you for the rest of your life!
Above all, don't wait until later: the university experience is here and now. Your SFU experience isn’t just about your future, it’s about the present. Enrolling in a course or program in French makes you part of the Francophonie — right now! By connecting with the Francophone community, you will meet people who are passionate about the French language and inspired by a vision of a plural and inclusive society.
This year, the OFFA is celebrating its 15th anniversary, and we plan to highlight this with new activities and increased programming. Invite your friends to subscribe to our newsletter and follow our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook accounts to stay up to date. For our back-to-school celebration on September 20, Radio-Canada will be back and broadcasting live "on the mountain" (at SFU’s Burnaby campus). Our signature event, the Printemps de la francophonie, will be celebrating its 10th year in March 2020. This PDLF will feature commemorative events you won’t want to miss!
I want to sincerely welcome you to SFU. The OFFA is your home! Have a great start!
