Gatineau, January 11, 2013 – The Organizing Committee for the Jeux de la francophonie canadienne Gatineau 2014 (JFC) today unveiled the logo for this national event, which will bring together 1,000 Francophones between 13 and 18 years of age, from every Canadian province and territory, for five days of competition between July 23 and 27, 2014. Participants will get to connect while testing their talents in three different areas: the arts, sports and leadership.
“This visual signature is a clear reflection of Gatineau’s imprint on this sweeping celebration of Canada’s Francophone youth. Not only will it generate close to $4 million for our economy, but the JFC will also strengthen the city’s reputation and position as a key player when it comes to staging major events. I invite all Gatineau residents, particularly its youth, to get involved in this terrific adventure,” indicated Gatineau Mayor Marc Bureau at the logo’s unveiling.
