2019 Falling into French Family Weekend2017-09-21T03:37:42-04:00
 Registration is closed for this event
Our annual Falling Into French Family Weekend is taking place from October 25-27, 2019 in Canmore, Alberta. This fun-filled family weekend is an opportunity for French-Second-Language, French Immersion or Francophone students to participate in fun activities outside of school where they can practice their French in a real-world environment.

This year’s Fall weekend will take place October 25-27, 2019  in Canmore, AB; we will be staying at the Coast Canmore Hotel.  This year’s fee is $500.00 for a family of 2 adults and 2 children.  Special rates for families of different sizes are available and can be found at the bottom of this page.

Registration will close October 11, 2019 however you are encouraged to register early as this has been a sold out event in previous years!

As CPF Alberta subsidizes this event we do require that at least one (1) adult from every family be a CPF member. If you are not yet a CPF member you can join HERE

PLEASE NOTE: Children 5 and under who ARE NOT participating in programming are free of charge and do not need to be included in the total number when selecting family size for payment. However, please do include them in the participants section. ex: If you have 2 adults, a 4 year old and a 10 year old you would select the "2 adults/1 child" option for payment. 


We also have a special promotion this year for returning participants—  they will have the opportunity to win a FREE future Family Weekend* for referring a new family. If you are a returning family be sure to tell your friends how great of a time you have on the CPF Family Weekends. When they register, all the new family has to do is write the referring individual’s name in the corresponding question on the registration form! Returning families will get 1 entry into the draw for the free weekend for each family that they refer so tell all your friends for a greater chance to win! The draw will take place on Saturday, October 26th during the family dinner in Canmore.
