French-language postsecondary education in British Columbia is receiving a boost of over $4.7M from the governments of British Columbia and Canada. Funding will support the University of Victoria, Collège Éducacentre, and the University of British Columbia in collaborating on a capacity-building project that will focus on creating new programs and courses to improve French-language academic opportunities. The project will offer better academic support and enhanced cultural activities for Francophone students, and will enable educational partners and community organizations to increase coordination and networking. The project will receive $2.6M from Canada and $2.1M from BC over a period of three years. News Wire Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
