Media Advisory: Students gather in Toronto to mark 10th anniversary of national bilingual conference
Nineteen National Youth Ambassadors from nine cities across Canada will be welcomed to City Hall by Councillor Adam Giambrone, Council representative to the City of Toronto French Committee, in preparation for the 10th anniversary French for the Future conference.

Date: Sunday, April 22
Time: 11 a.m.
Location: City Hall Rotunda, 100 Queen St. W.

The French for the Future conference was first hosted at Toronto City Hall with the support of former Mayor Barbara Hall. It was founded by John Ralston Saul and Lisa Balfour Bowen, as Toronto’s response to the 1995 Quebec referendum. This year, more than 1,500 students from across Canada will meet in 10 cities on April 24 to better appreciate their future in both of Canada’s official languages.

Toronto is Canada’s largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people. It is the economic engine of Canada and one of the greenest and most creative cities in North America. In the past three years Toronto has won more than 50 awards for quality and innovation in delivering public services. Toronto’s government is dedicated to prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all its residents.
