Le Point d’accueil francophone (le PAF)August 6, 2021
By Julienne Kotto
The Point d’accueil francophone (PAF) is a one-stop shop for referral and orientation whose main goal is to facilitate French-speaking immigrant settlement, by gathering all the services offered by 10 Francophone service-providers working in pre-arrival services, settlement, employability, education, training, entrepreneurship and social medias.
Why the PAF?
Ten Francophone partners wanted to offer to future and current Francophone newcomers a one-stop shop to facilitate access to French services in the national Capital. These partners of the Ottawa region work in immigrant support services, settlement, employability, education, communications, entrepreneurship and professional training. They got together to establish the PAF: Point d’accueil francophone.
The PAF is a one-stop shop located in Ottawa to orientate and inform French-speaking immigrants as well as to quickly support them with referrals to French services so that they can make enlightened choices for their successful integration into the Francophone community of Ottawa region and surroundings.
Allow French-speaking immigrants to have a fully successful integration and to integrate into the Francophone community of Ottawa region and surroundings.
