Tuesday, January 7 to Tuesday, February 18, 2020
Canadian Language Museum
Canada is not only the second largest country in the world, it is also the country with the largest number of native French speakers after France. French plays an important role in the linguistic landscape of Canada, perpetuating a language whose North American origins are nearly four centuries old. French in Canada presents the dynamic history and contemporary status of Francophone communities from coast to coast. This exhibit highlights the Laurentian and Acadian dialects and describes language contact with English and Aboriginal languages.
Please note the exhibition is currently taking place at Glendon until February 18th, 2020 and then at ” La Maison de la Francophonie d’Ottawa” from March 4th, 2020.
