Dear Madam or Sir,

 

The safety of our students is our priority. With respect to Ontario public health regulation, we took the difficult decision to close our facility to the public for the coming weeks.

It doesn't mean that we are canceling all the classes! Please check the situation that applies to you: 

- The private classes move to online courses and continue as scheduled with the consent of the students and teachers. Many of our private classes are already happening online with a lot of success (with the very easy-to-use and free software Hang out).

- The standard adult group classes are now all migrating online. With the help of the Alliance Française network, we are preparing an online teaching plan that will allow for continuity in the classroom, which has already proven to be a success in other Alliances Françaises around the world. Each student will be contacted with this new information before the start of the class.

- The current children group classes are :

We also offer more flexible options regarding our cancellation/change policy. Do not hesitate to contact us for more information.

We are aware that the situation is rapidly evolving, and we will update you if there is any change regarding these measures. We sincerely thank you for your trust in our organization and hope to see you very soon. 

Best regards,

Jean Grenier Godard

General manager

 

Dear Madam or Sir,

 

Faced with the health emergency caused by COVID-19, the management of Alliance Française Toronto has decided to take several measures.

The health and safety of our students, our public and our employees are our top priorities.

 

As of Tuesday, March 17, until April 5, Alliance Française Toronto will be closed. This includes its five campuses: Markham, Mississauga, North York, Oakville, and Spadina.

Concretely, this indicates that:

- Our next cultural events are canceled or postponed. We will communicate very soon on this subject.

- Classes of all kinds and for all audiences will no longer be given in person.

 

However, as of Monday, March 23, we are putting all our effort together to offer teenagers and adults the opportunity to continue their experience with French thanks to our new online courses.

 

Alliance Française Toronto will ensure the continuity of its services for the duration of the closure of its premises. As such, you can communicate with our teams by email. You should know that we put all our means at your disposal to ensure you the best possible services and allow you to continue to learn French.

We attach great importance to the relationship with our students and our audience. This is why a more specific communication will be sent to them in order to specify the new methods of conducting our courses and our cultural events.

 

Alliance Française Toronto continues to monitor the situation that evolves daily very closely. We also invite you to learn more about COVID-19 and to take personal steps to protect yourself by visiting the Public Health Agency of Canada website.

Please monitor Alliance Française social networks and our website www.alliance-francaise.ca to keep up to date with our updates.

 

In this period of great uncertainty, I would like to remind you that solidarity remains a virtue and that "Prudence saves ten times more troubles than it costs" (Henri-Frédéric Amiel -1978).

 

Best regards,

Jean Grenier Godard
