When are JFCNO ? 

July 11 to 15, 2023 in Victoria, BC. July 10 and 16 will be travel days for the Manitoban delegation. 

What are JFCNO ?

Les Jeux franco-canadien du Nord et de l’Ouest (JFCNO), or the Northwestern Francophone Games, is a gathering dedicated to French-speaking youth between the ages of 14 and 18, living in the northern and western provinces of Canada (Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Nunavut, Northwest Territories, Saskatchewan and Yukon). This event is five days of unique experiences that will strengthen the cultural identity of these young francophones, with many opportunities to meet and engage with new friends !

The JFCNO are a non-competitive event that will focus on building relationships between French-speaking youth aged 14 to 18 from across the Western provinces and the North. Its objective is to offer stimulating and diverse programming for French-speaking youth that will help them create resilience to the ever-changing world that surrounds them, especially after several years of isolation, lack of support in French and increased mental health awareness.

The JFCNO is dedicated to promoting the diversity of skills of French-Canadian youth.

JFCNO are not JeuxFC

The 2020 Victoria Games (JeuxFC) is the local host committee which was created to organize the 8th edition of the Canadian Francophone Games in July 2020. These Games are owned by the national partner, the Fédération jeunesse canadienne-française (FJCF) of which the Conseil Jeunesse Provincial (Cjp) is a member.
