Francophone services in MB (Services francophones au Manitoba)

Skip to:

Manitoba has a growing Francophone community. Based on the Manitoba Immigration Facts 2014 statistical report, the number of French-speaking immigrants nearly quadrupled from 2002 to 2014. In fact, St. Boniface in Winnipeg is known as the second largest Francophone community outside of Quebec. Manitoba has been attracting so many Francophone newcomers in recent years as it is regarded as a choice destination.

For our Francophone friends needing settlement services, here are some helpful links to agencies and organizations serving the Francophone community.
