About Us

Le Conseil de la Francosphère (CFR), sometimes shortened to The Francosphère (French: La Francosphère), known in English as The Francosphère Council, is an international organization representing countries and regions where French is a lingua franca or customary language, where a significant proportion of the population are francophones (French speakers), or where there is a notable affiliation with French culture. The term "Francosphère", or "francosphere" (often capitalized in English) refers to the global community of French-speaking peoples, comprising a network of private and public organizations promoting universal ties among countries where French people or France played a significant historical role, culturally, militarily, or politically.

The organization, based in New Montreal, Nouveau Quebecois, comprises 23 member states and governments; of these, 15 states are full members, 8 are associate states or observers, and 1 is suspended or barred from the organization. The anthem of the organization is LinkLe Chant à Sainte Jeanne d'Arc, an ode to an internationally recognized French Heroine, empowered woman, and embodiment of French heritage. The motto of the organization, "L'Union Fait la Force", roughly translates as "In Unity is Strength", a call to all nations of The Francosphère Council for unity behind the banner of French culture. The organization was founded on the 25th of December, 1995, on the eve of the establishment of its capital, Nouveau Quebecois. Notable leaders of the organization include Founder Cédric Lésage of Nouveau Quebecois and Consul Louis Barrande of Nouvelle-floride.

Saint Jeanne d'Arc (Joan of Arc), burned at the stake for crimes against the Republic.

Our Mission

The stated mission of The Francosphère Council is to organize, arrange cooperation of, and demonstrate unity between the many countries belonging to the Francosphere. We seek to explore, study, and promote the French language, its culture, and linguistic diversity. As an interreggional organization, The Francosphère Council leads political actions and multilateral cooperation according to the missions drawn by the organized Summits of The Francosphère Council. Across the globe we look to supporting scientific research, training, friendly competition via sport, and especially education; French linguistic and historical education; Education begins with all children having access to a full primary education free of any inequality. It involves an integrated approach of teaching and training from primary to secondary school that will lead to employment. Education policies must also give French an integral place alongside the partner languages.

The organization is working towards sustainable development by supporting the improvement of economic governance, capacity building, cooperation and the search for common positions in major international negotiations. It's necessary to manage durably the natural resources, particularly the energy and the water, and politics are established to make sure of the conservation of these resources with effective anti-poverty campaigns.

These are just some of the many commitments The Francosphère Council is invested in. The Francosphère Council is always representative and open to new objectives, creating specifications, and cooperation with other regional and interregional causes and collectives.
