Provincial Franco-Ontarians Day, officially celebrated since 2010, will take place on September 25. The date marks the anniversary of the Franco-Ontarian flag, which was first hoisted in Sudbury in 1975. CSC Nouvelon says students and staff take great pride in celebrating the flag’s 46th anniversary. The day of activities, while recognizing their Francophone and Catholic heritage, also promotes the excellence and dedication of its students and staff who seek to expand their Francophone space and fully experience their own culture in the province of Ontario.
