There are many reasons for joining CPF, the most important being to ensure that FSL education in Canada is all that it can be for your child and for all children in Canada. We appreciate all that our members have done for us, and want to return the favour by offering tools, help, and exclusive members-only resources and events as a way of thanks for joining our family.   Check out our benefits flyer and all that CPF has to offer you and your family – besides membership in a strong community of parents and advocates across the country, that is.

A Letter From CPF National to All Members – July 2020

Members-Only Tools and Guides

Upon registering, new CPF members receive a digital copy of Helping Your Child Become Bilingual: A Toolkit for CPF Members, a helpful booklet containing everything from program breakdowns to how to help support your child’s academic journey.

Members may contact the CPF National office for advocacy support, and to obtain access to our database catalogue of research on FSL education in Canada.

Peer Tutoring Literacy Program

In some jurisdictions, CPF membership is a prerequisite to participating in many of CPF’s youth programs like Concours d’art oratoire, summer camps, and more. For more information on why joining your local CPF community could benefit you and your family, contact your local branch.

Peer Tutoring Literacy Program for French Immersion Schools: A Parent-Teacher Collaborative Approach – This school-based initiative is designed to foster literacy in French immersion. Intended for almost independent Grades 2 and 3 readers, with no major learning difficulties, who would benefit from extra reading support. Program delivery by teachers, parents and older students.

Easy Access to CPF Publications

Each CPF member receives a personal subscription to CPF Magazine and to the newsletter(s) representing local branches and/or chapters. Keep up to date with CPF events and activities across Canada by joining our national family of supporters.

Many additional CPF publications, including pamphlets, posters, videos, and more, are available to CPF members at discounted rates or, in some cases, free of charge; your membership fee can go a long way to saving you money in the end!

Networking and Advocacy

CPF members have opportunities to network locally, provincially and nationally with others who share their interests through community meetings, skill-building workshops, training sessions for volunteers and parents, and more. Your membership gives CPF a stronger voice to advocate for access to quality FSL education with ministers and administrators at the national and provincial/territorial levels and with school boards in your community.
