L’Accueil Francophone (AF)was established by the Franco-Manitoban Society to help immigrants and refugees settle in Manitoba. We offer different services and programs at AF such as Settlement services for immigrants, Resettlement Assistance Program (RAP) for refugees, Host program, Integration program, Volunteer program, and the Francophone Immigration Network (RIF).
L’Accueil Francophone also runs Abri Marguerite and Centre de la Pastorale (a transition housing with 5 townhouse units and 24 units) with a welcoming capacity of over 110 persons to accommodate refugees upon arrival on a short term basis.
Accueil Francophone is funded by Immigration Refugee Citizenship Canada (IRCC) since 2003 to provide services to Francophone and allophones refugees and immigrants coming to Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Accueil Francophone has annually received between 250 and 300 clients and provided services to refugees from all over the world.
