WHO WE ARE
The Assemblée Communautaire fransaskoise (ACF) is the governing body of the
Fransaskois community. We represent the French speakers of Saskatchewan, including
Francophones of origin and French speakers in general.
The ACF was founded in 1912 in order to address the issue of French public education.
This provincial organization was founded by the same individuals who founded
Gravelbourg's Collège Mathieu, the first classical college in Saskatchewan, whose
mandate was to ensure the availability of higher education in French in Saskatchewan.
