Myriam Lafrance has been working for French for the Future since 2008. As Program Director, she has played a critical role within the organization and contributed greatly to its growth and vision.
Myriam is Franco-Ontarian. Completely bilingual herself, she experiences firsthand the advantages of being able to speak both of Canada’s official languages. Myriam has a Bachelor of Education degree from McGill University and is presently completing a certificate in Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Management at Ryerson University. Shortly after graduating from McGill University, Myriam spent two years teaching French Immersion to First-Nations students in an isolated village in James Bay. She later moved to Mexico where she taught in a bilingual (Spanish-English) school for three years.
Myriam is thrilled to be working towards a national goal she truly believes in: to make more students fluent in Canada’s two official languages.
