Major organizations

Established in 1973, the Fédération des francophones de Terre-Neuve et du Labrador (FFTNL) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting French culture in the province and working to the development of the province's Francophone and Acadian community. As the community's official representative, FFTNL represents the interests of its five member associations which meet as a board of directors three times a year. Its offices are in St. John's, seat of the provincial government and home to regional federal offices dealing with Francophone rights in a minority situation. Funding for FFTNL comes mainly from the Department of Canadian Heritage, under the Official Languages Act. Its main functions include political representation, acting as a liaison with its members, and ensuring implementation of provincial initiatives.

Under the Official Languages Act, the federal government has an obligation to provide bilingual services in its departments and agencies and contribute to the development of minority-language communities. FFTNL works with Department of Canadian Heritage for the implementation of these obligations and serves as a link between federal departments and Francophone community organizations.

Namely, FFTNL is directly responsible for the provincial coordination of the culture, health and immigration files.
