The Canadian Francophone Games 2020

July 14–18

On July 14, Team Yukon will take off to Victoria, British Columbia, to participate in the 8th Canadian Francophone Games (JeuxFC—CFGames).

The Canadian Francophone Games are among the largest gatherings of Canada’s French speaking youth.

In addition to encouraging hundreds of young people to exercise their talents in one of three sectors (art, leadership and sport), the Games showcase cultural pride, self-confidence and leadership abilities in a friendly, competitive setting.

The Games are held during the summer months every three years. Over 1,200 participants and more than 750 volunteers are expected for every edition of the Games.

Disciplines

Arts, leadership, sports

The CFGames are intended to be:

A CELEBRATION of French speaking youth in Canada

an AHA! MOMENT for francophone youth to develop their identity, individually and as a group

an Excellent opportunity for DEVELOPMENT, chance to go beyond ones’ expectations

an event NOT TO BE MISSED, which every community aspires to host

The CFGames are organized based on the BY and FOR youth principle and seek to comply with and contribute to the principles of SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT.

The story of Henri the Husky

Henri the Husky sled dog was retired from sledding because he was too rambunctious. We adopted him for the CFGames. An avid fan of youth gatherings, Henri has been rewarded many times for his loyalty towards Francophone Yukon.

Since the very first CFGames in 1999, Henri the Husky has been our proud mascot. In fact, he was the first mascot to receive an accreditation with photo . . . which is now a Team Yukon tradition.

One of Henri’s secret wishes is probably a race equal to his convictions, namely, a demonstration sled dog race at future CFGames.
