Accueil : Vivre à Hawkesbury
Vivre à Hawkesbury (which means to “Live in Hawkesbury”) represents the Welcoming Francophone Communities (WFC) initiative of Hawkesbury. Its goal is to help support French-speaking newcomers and to encourage their sense of belonging to their new community.
Why choose Hawkesbury
Hawkesbury is a rural Ontario town with deep Francophone roots. According to the last census, it has a population of 10,194 inhabitants, 87 percent of whom are fluent in French and 67 percent of whom speak Canada’s two official languages. Every service in the town and region is provided in both French and English. What’s more, we have a number of associations and organizations dedicated to helping the local community grow and thrive, by assisting residents in finding jobs, housing, schools and more.
Through the efforts of the WFC, the Town of Hawkesbury should be able to better welcome immigrants and ensure their full development.
