Grant Description
Grants to Manitoba nonprofit organizations, school divisions, schools, institutions of higher education, and professional associations to enhance French-language education. Funding is intended to implement French programs and courses and to strengthen the cultural and linguistic identity of students. All project activities must be conducted in French.

Goals of the FSLRP

Provide financial support for projects that ultimately aim to:

  1. Ensure the full implementation of the French Immersion Program and the successful delivery of French courses (English Program)
  2. Enhance the linguistic and cultural identity of the students so that they can:
    • Communicate with confidence and fluency in French in academic, cultural, and social contexts
    • Increase their desire to continue their studies in French and choose to use that language throughout their life

The strategic framework chosen by the Bureau de l'éducation française to achieve the goals of the FSLRP is based on the following four educational areas:

  • Create a school setting appropriate for learning French
  • Validate students’ linguistic and educational experience
  • Support educational staff
  • Recruit and retain students in the French Immersion Program and in the French courses (English Program)
