The Canadian Francophone Games are a national triennial event that fosters connections by presenting a unique program of 13 disciplines combining the arts, cooperation, leadership and sports. They showcase more than a thousand young aged 14 to 18 from across Canada. Hundreds of volunteers work behind the scenes, developing their skills, and creating a festive atmosphere in their host community. The Canadian Francophone Games provide youth with cultural pride, self-confidence and leadership abilities in a friendly, competitive setting.

Cities or organizations that wish to submit their application can obtain a copy of the Bid Guide and related documents by contacting Caroline Bujold, National Coordinator, at 780.463.0888, at caroline@fjcf.ca, or by visiting www.jeuxfc.ca under the “Prochaine édition JeuxFC” heading. (Please note that official documents are only available in French, as les Jeux de la francophonie canadienne is a francophone event, but that an English summary is available). A letter of intent must be submitted before May 30th, 2019, and bids will be accepted until September 30th, 2019. The host committee will be announced early 2020.
