Carole Anctil-Michalyshyn is from Edmonton, Alberta and has been involved with CPF for nearly 10 years. She has served her local chapter as board member and as president, in addition to having served as a provincial director. She continues to chair the annual Gala d’art oratoire, sponsored by her local chapter.
Her interest in French-language learning has been lifelong, stemming first from the influence of her francophone father. While at university, she completed an immersion course in Rimouski, Quebec. Her two children, in junior high and high school, are both enrolled in French immersion in Edmonton Catholic schools. Since her children started kindergarten, she has been involved in advocacy for quality French programs and opportunities and resources for FSL (particularly French immersion), and she truly believes in the importance of bilingualism and strong French language education.
Carole holds a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Laws from the University of Alberta and is an active member of the Law Society of Alberta. She does legal research on a part-time basis and has been a stay-at-home mom since the birth of her first child. Carole believes firmly in the importance of being involved in the community and serves in various capacities on a number of boards. She has worked extensively in board policy and program development. Her professional background has been an asset in her board work in getting to the core of the issues and in working collaboratively to find solutions to challenges.
Carole is very pleased to be nominated to the CPF National Board and welcomes the opportunity to be part of the CPF team at the national level, working to support and encourage French-language learning.
