Fostering French-language distance education in the Yukon
Whitehorse, February 29, 2016 - The Association franco-yukonnaise (AFY) is proud to partner with Éducacentre College to offer Yukoners more access to more French-language distance training. This partnership is consistent with the accreditation standards of Éducacentre College, which can now award its own diplomas and develop quality programs to better meet the needs of Francophones and the labour market.
"This change in status opens the door to new partnerships," said Thomas Godin, President of Éducacentre College. "It made sense to start with the Association franco-yukonnaise, a long-time partner of the College. Ultimately, this collaboration will benefit all Francophone communities, in the North and the West."
"Thanks to a large network of partners, AFY has been meeting the adult training needs of Yukon Francophones since 1991," said AFY President Angélique Bernard. "We will be pleased to implement the plan developed with Éducacentre College and encourage Yukoners to participate in the College's quality distance education programs."
Programs and collegial studies in education, health, tourism and hospitality services are offered, in addition to a variety of continuing education courses. For more details, go to (in French only):
