Education Act, Section 14

Rooted in the constitutional rights established by section 23 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Francophone education provides students with programming that fosters personal, intellectual and social development while enabling them to master the French language and to build a sense of belonging to and identification with the Francophone culture, community and language. Thus, the program goal is two-fold: French language proficiency and identity development.
