To adapt to military lifestyle and its many changes can be challenging. Integrating into a new environment where the spoken language is not your first language may also prove to be a challenge. Did you know that francophones represent 30 percent of the military community at 17 Wing? Over the years, the MFRC has developed several programs and services to meet this need.
Activities for francophones
Francophones within the 17 Wing community gather all year long to have fun, socialize, build relationships or just to enjoy being amongst other Francophones! Whether we join to celebrate St-Jean-Baptiste Day, sharing a great Sugar Shack meal, enjoy a guys’ night out or an outdoorsy type of activity, it is always a pleasure to get together.
