Le gala des prix Bernard Grandmaître – Gala
ACFO Ottawa is a non-profit organization, and the voice of francophones in Ottawa. We ensure political representation, liaison with different levels of government, and advocate for the rights of francophones and access to French-language services.
Throughout the year, we have three recurring events. First of all, the Annual General Meeting that takes places every year, typically in September, is the occasion for our members to gather to decide on the vision and orientation of the organization as well as to elect the Board of administrators. We also organize the celebrations of the 25th of September, the Franco-Ontarian Day, in Ottawa. Finally, since 1999, we organize the Bernard-Grandmaître Award Gala, a celebration of our community leader’s efforts that takes place annually in February.
Furthermore, we also develop other shorter-term projects and collaborate with partners and allies on larger issues. Currently, we have the Nos Muralités project, an initiative we started in 2017 to bring French-Canadian artists and students together in order to create murals in various neighbourhoods across the city that celebrate modern and diverse French culture.
