Francophone Games

The francophone organization of the Jeux francophones de l’Alberta was spawned from the larger French youth organization of the province, Francophonie jeunesse de l’Alberta (FJA) which was created in 1972. The FJA held a camping meet every year and met with great success, led to the 1993 creation of the very successful Fête franco-albertaine, hosted by a different locality each year.

The FJA also decided to organize games for francophone youth and their first competition took place 8 and 9 October 1992. The organization has since regrouped with other French-speaking youth groups across the West and across the country. In 2003, they celebrated their 11th year. In 2004, the association recreated itself to organize games for people of all ages, instead of only for youth.
