The Conseil scolaire francophone de la Colombie-Britannique offers educational programs and services geared towards the growth and cultural promotion of the province’s Francophone learners. An active partner in the development of British Columbia’s Francophone community, the Conseil has presently in its system, and distributed across 78 communities in the province, over 4,450 students and 36 schools, which includes 23 homogeneous schools.
The school board was created in 1995. Originally its service area was Metro Vancouver. Its service area has covered the entire province since 1998. The change in jurisdiction was effective 1 July 1999.
