Testimonials

I lived in Maillardville all my life and the SFM has proven to be a great resource to my family and I! For my dad, who came from Willow Bunch in Saskatchewan, it was important that his kids learn French and get exposed to the French-Canadian culture. The SFM provides this opportunity by facilitating access to French-Canadian cultural traditions and by keeping the francophone spirit alive. The SFM is consistently demonstrated a high level of professionalism, passion and we (residents of Maillardville) feel privileged to be able to have a place down the road where only French is spoken.”

– Léo Bruneau, Native et résident de Maillardville


"The Maillardville Francophone Center is truly a treasure in our community, a fond reminder of the strong bilingualism and a rich national history which began at the meeting of English, French and Aboriginal communities. Today, linguistic groups breathe with diversity and no longer pertain to strict definitions. A big thank you to the Société francophone de Maillardville for offering cultural events, preserving our cultural heritage and for creating a unique platform where Francophones and Francophiles in Coquitlam can meet and share their experiences.”

– Melody Tabatabaian, étudiante au centre francophone de Maillardville


"The heart of the francophone culture in BC is in Maillardville and it comes alive at the events hosted by the SFM. We see the French ‘love for life’ or ‘joie de vivre’ on the excited faces of our children at wonderful events like festival du bois. Thank you SFM for offering such fantastic events in our community which encourage our children to embrace and celebrate their French heritage!"

– The Pepin Family, regular visitors at Festival du Bois
