Association canadienne-française de l'Alberta

A grouping of a wide variety of Franco-Albertan organizations had been considered by the members of the Société du parler français in 1912. Nothing was realized until 1925 after World War I. There were several complicating factors.

The organization of the Alberta wide support group was underway on 13 December 1925 with a meeting of 400 people called by le club Jeanne-d'Arc. On 17 July 1926 the Association canadienne-française de l'Alberta (ACFA) was established

The ACFA continues to protect and serve the rights of French-speakers in Alberta.

At age 80+ the ACFA membership is no longer represented by parish circles as it was in the beginning. Now, local circles and regional offices answer for the membership at the Francophone community level.
