The Centre de la Francophonie de UBC is a joint venture of the Department of French, Hispanic and Italian Studies in the Faculty of Arts, the Department of Language and Literacy Education in the Faculty of Education, and UBC Extended Learning. The Centre encourages cross-cultural dialogue, the promotion of the French language on campus and in the community and of Francophone cultures in Canada and around the world.
