Francophone Curriculum

According to section 23 of the Canadian Charter of Rights, Francophone students have a right to be educated in French at schools managed by Francophones.

Instructional time allotted for education in French was very limited for children of French-Canadian ancestry in the past. The province-wide teacher organization, l'Association des Éducateurs bilingues de l'Alberta (AÉBA), also agonized over availability of educational materials. History books, readers, and grammars were usually ordered from Quebec. The Department of Education has developed three sections pertaining to French language instruction: Francophone, French as a second language, and French immersion.
