In 1883, French visionaries like Louis Pasteur and Jules Vernes created an association with the goal of
sharing the French language and culture. After more than a century, these ideals live on in more than 800 Alliances Françaises around the
world, in 137 countries. This network is the only language school recognized by the French government, but more than that, we are recognized
as one of the best places to interact with the French culture!
In Winnipeg, the adventure began in 1915 at the University of Manitoba, when professors Charles Muller and William Osborne gathered a group
of friends for a cultural evening. From its humble beginning as a literature club, the Alliance blossomed into an institution of
teaching excellence. Our family of members is continually growing, whether they be students or simply interested by francophone
culture.Throughout its existence, the Alliance never ceases to improve and innovate in order to better serve its members. Located
on Corydon avenue since 1993,
the Alliance française du Manitoba shares its wealth of knowledge and experience with the entire community: individuals or corporations,
students or francophiles, beginners and experts.
