Mois de la Francophonie

Let’s celebrate the Mois de la francophonie

At the University of Ottawa, we speak French in the plural. Our francophone nature is of inestimable value and key to the identity of our extended family, in teaching and scholarly research as much as in our culture of co-existence.

French at uOttawa is spoken in the plural because of its many voices, accents and cultures, and its rich variety of linguistic expressions.It’s key to our university’s renewal, building on our basic values of supporting the growth of the French language and promoting a bilingualism that brings us together.

Yves Pelletier, associate vice-president, Francophonie, and Gisèle Yasmeen, associate vice-president, international, kick off the Mois de la Francophonie with an overview of the linguistic beacon that is our university.
