New Francophone Elementary School Approved in Burnaby to Enhance Community Education

Government’s response to community growth

In response to the growing needs of Burnaby’s francophone community, British Columbia has approved the construction of a new Conseil Scolaire Francophone de la Colombie-Britannique (CSF) kindergarten-to-Grade 6 elementary school. This initiative aims to improve education accessibility for French-speaking residents.

Investment in sustainable education infrastructure

With an investment of nearly $41 million, the government is funding the construction of a three-storey school designed with energy efficiency in mind. Aligned with the CleanBC program, the new school will meet LEED Gold standards, significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions compared to traditional construction methods.

Integrated learning and childcare facilities

Beyond traditional classrooms, the new school will feature a neighbourhood learning center, providing both childcare services and community spaces. This approach streamlines drop-off and pickup for families and reflects the government’s commitment to prioritize child care alongside educational developments.

Continued support for French-language education

Since September 2017, the Province has actively supported CSF initiatives, providing over $93 million for site purchases and $130 million for construction projects in various locations. This ongoing commitment underscores the government’s dedication to fostering French-language education across British Columbia.

Local enthusiasm and community strengthening

MLA Katrina Chen, representing Burnaby-Lougheed, expressed enthusiasm for the progress of the CSF school, emphasizing the positive impact on the local francophone community. The integration of education and childcare services in one location is expected to strengthen support for families.

Efficient project coordination for enhanced services

Recognizing the importance of efficient project coordination, the Province has allocated funding to help CSF establish a capital project office. This office will streamline the delivery of capital projects, ensuring effective support for francophone students and their families throughout the province.

Joyful milestone for CSF

Marie-Pierre Lavoie, Chair of the CSF Board of Directors, expressed immense joy at realizing the first elementary school in Burnaby. Securing provincial funding is crucial for providing equivalent French-language education in the region, bringing primary education closer to home for children.
