Advocacy is an involved process that, for CPF, includes organizing around a specific issue, building community support to influence decision makers, and advocating for FSL programs and for our children’s education.

Our research-based advocacy gives a voice to the thousands of Canadians nationwide who want greater linguistic opportunities for their children with every passing generation; and as successful advocates, we have informed and influenced decision-makers at every jurisdictional level, from the school board to the Canadian Cabinet.
