About the ACUFC:
The Association des collèges et universités de la francophonie canadienne (ACUFC) brings together 21 colleges and universities of the Canadian Francophonie. Our vision: increase access to postsecondary education in French, thus creating an effective continuum of French-language education, from early childhood to postsecondary studies. Two other entities also operate under our aegis: the Consortium national de formation en santé (CNFS) and the Réseau national de formation en justice (RNFJ). These three organizations carry out compatible, essential and research-oriented missions. Together, we contribute to the vitality and sustainability of the Canadian Francophonie in education, health and justice, all across Canada. ACUFC.ca
