The Franco-Santé project:
Franco-Santé is a program that provides a space for francophone and francophile health care students attending English-language post-secondary institutions (in any discipline of health) to practice their French through fun activities, games, and connecting with fellow students. It is funded by Health Canada and led by the Société Santé en Français (SSF). The goal of the initiative is to help students recognize the importance of French as one of Canada’s official languages and enable them to use it in their medical careers in order to be able to better serve francophones across the country.
*The holding of the event will depend on the covid health restrictions in place
