New Funding Model And Capital Investment For Francophone Education

Released on March 21, 2019

The Government of Saskatchewan and Conseil des Écoles Fransaskoises (CÉF) are pleased to announce the signing of the first ever Saskatchewan Francophone funding model.  In addition to this new funding model milestone, the province is exploring the option of a new interim school in Prince Albert to address the community’s concerns with the existing school.  The Ministry of Education is examining the potential use of former Rivier Academy for CÉF students in that city.

Two of the CÉF’s capital projects are included in the top ten capital projects this year.  The signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) reinforces the government’s commitment to new schools in Regina, Saskatoon and Prince Albert over the coming six years.  The province will continue to work closely with CÉF and the federal government to access any funds available for Francophone education facilities.

“The development of the first ever Saskatchewan Francophone funding model and the signed MOU are significant steps toward fulfilling the triple mandate of education, culture and community,” Deputy Premier and Education Minister Gordon Wyant said.  “I would like to thank the CÉF and the ministry for their hard work to ensure the needs of our students are met.”

“We are very pleased that all the hard work by our administration, Francophone parents and our trustees, in collaboration with our provincial partners has led to the approval of this new funding model,” Conseil Scolaire Fransaskois Chair Alpha Barry said.  “We look forward to the next steps.”

A first-language school today, a bilingual Francophone for life! - The Conseil des écoles fransaskoises (CÉF) is home to 2,000 preschool to Grade 12 students in 15 elementary and secondary schools across the province.  Financed by the Ministry of Education, it is the only French as a first language school board in Saskatchewan.
