Events

As the saying goes: out of sight, out of mind. This is why we’re meeting once a month alternately on the 3rd Friday morning of the month for a breakfast in Faubourg Paris or on the 3rd Thursday evening of the month in a bar or a restaurant. All we want is for you to have great conversations with like-minded people and maintain lively and enriching relationships with our French-speaking fellow managers and executives.

You will have the opportunity to discuss your industry and your field of expertise with other French-speaking, well-integrated people. And if you feel like talking about culture, politics, economics, travel and other topics, that’s fine too. What really matters is the sincerity and the quality of our exchanges as our ultimate goal is to create a thriving community of French Alumni who seek to build long-lasting relationships in beautiful Vancouver.

What could you expect?

  • Casual and welcoming atmosphere
  • Like-minded people who want to build qualitative and long-lasting relationships
  • Lively discussions about various topics

Why should you come?

French Sunrise

Early bird catches the worm! Our morning exchanges are cozy and intimist. They last about one hour and a half before everybody leaves for work. Start the day on the right foot with French pastries and an uplifting conversation with our members!

Our French Sunrise happens at Faubourg at 769 Hornby Street.

French Sunset

Finish your day on a positive note and drop by at our evening events. Enjoy a drink in a lively atmosphere and debate your ideas and beliefs about the crazy world we’re living in. And stay for as long as you want!

Check out our calendar without further ado and join our next event! If you have any questions about who we are and what we do, don’t hesitate to contact us!

About

You’ve studied in France or in another French-speaking country and you’ve been working in Vancouver for a while now? Great! We would love you to join our dynamic group of expats!

French Alumni seeks out to regroup French-speaking qualified professionals living in Vancouver, British-Columbia who wish to share their experiences and point of views with like-minded people. Our very mixed group of participants - from people starting a career to senior executives coming from various professions and industries - meets once a month in a casual and convivial atmosphere.

French Alumni is founded on the values of open-mindedness, sincere and long-lasting relationships and casual exchanges.

Open-mindedness

We invite you to keep an open mind when attending our events. Trying to understand people’s perspective is the most effective way to learn and to grow!

Long-lasting relationships

We believe that the magic happens when people truly take the time to know each other. Think in the long-term!

Casual Exchanges

We like meeting in a warm atmosphere but informal setting. Here is our policy: no dress code, no agenda and no lengthy speeches. We’re here to talk!
