The Northern Ontario Francophone Immigration Support Network presents the 3 selected Northern Ontario communities interested in developing their immigration capacity.
The selected communities are:
- The Corporation of the Township of Dubreuilville with the communities of Dubreuilville, Wawa and White River
- The City of Temiskaming Shores with the francophone organization, “Association canadienne-française de l’Ontario – région Temiskaming” (ACFO)
- The City of Kenora with the Francophone organization, “Association des francophones du nord-ouest de l’Ontario (AFNOO)”
From the lack of human resources to the decrease in the number of Francophones in the North, the challenges are numerous and must be met through the union of Francophone actors.
Thus, these three communities will have access to a $20,000 budget that will allow them to operate more easily in their region. At the same time, they will also be responsible for certain tasks such as the creation of community activities or the realization of local context analyzes with the support of the Réseau du Nord.
The Northern network is pleased to participate in the 10th edition of the National francophone immigration week from November 6 to 12. Under the theme “Our Traditions and Our Future”.
Francophones and Francophiles in Northern Ontario will celebrate the richness of cultural diversity and the diversity and the importance of the contribution of immigrants in our Francophone communities.
Initiated in 2013, the week is coordinated at the national level by the Fédération des communautés
and Acadian communities (FCFA) of Canada and at the provincial and territorial level by the Réseaux en
immigration francophone (RIF).

The Northern Network is pleased to announce the official release of the video Route du Succès – North Bay, the fifth in our video series.
After Timmins and the Route 11 Corridor, passing through Temiskaming and Northwestern Ontario, the Road to Success makes a stop in North Bay. You will discover quality testimonials that will move many. Through this project, The Northern Network recalls one of the characteristics of its mandate, which is to ensure the economic, social and cultural integration of French-speaking immigrants into Canadian society and Francophone minority communities.
Created in 2020, this project aims to highlight the career and successes of Francophone newcomers to Northern Ontario. The Northern Network in partnership with various organizations, has created this tool in order to bring these success stories to our communities, but also beyond.
This project is funded by IRCC, but also by the City of North Bay, Century 21, Alliance Credit Union, Yes Jobs (DAWN program) and the Chamber of Commerce (RNIP). With the participation of the Nipissing Training Centre, Canadore College, Nipissing University, Unik theater and Compagnons francs loisirs.
