Franco-ténoise Community

The French speaking community in the Northwest Territories is diverse and dynamic. A number of key community organizations exist for Francophones and Francophiles living and working north of 60. 

The Department of Education, Culture and Employment provided a grant to Radio Taïga under the Community Broadcasting Grant Program. This program is designed to provide funding to help pay for the operating costs of community broadcasting organizations. ECE provides five dollars in grant money for every one dollar raised locally by a community broadcast organization. Radio Taïga is Yellowknife’s French community radio, in operation since 2000.
