Yukon Francophone School Board
The Yukon Francophone School Board (CSFY) is responsible for French First Language education in the Yukon. At present , the CSFY offers three programs: elementary (École Émilie-Tremblay), secondary (Académie Parhélie) and home schooling (École Nomade). The CSFY was established in 1996 when the first students who had taken their classes in French were completing their secondary education at Émilie-Tremblay School.
In 2009, the Yukon Francophone School Board filed an action against the Government of Yukon to obtain full school management by and for Francophones. Today, the CSFY and Yukon Government are working together to find negotiated solutions and to support the construction of the Francophone high school.
