The Centre culturel Frontenac rejoices after winning the Lyse-Daniels Prize of Excellence 2017-2018 for the Canadian component.

Sunday March 25, the Quebecois organization Impératif français awarded the Lyse-Daniels Prize of Excellence 2017-2018 to the Centre Culturel Frontenac. Impératif français, an organization that celebrates the vibrancy of Francophones in Quebec, Canada and elsewhere, created this prize in order to reward people and organizations that set themselves apart in the promotion and accessibility of the French language and culture. The CCF was rewarded alongside the organization Richelieu International, Mélissa Lefebvre and Paul Tom, Michel Lavoie, and the Festival de Musique Émergente de Rouyn-Noranda. The Lyse-Daniels Prize of Excellence was awarded in the past to artistic organizations such as the Cercle Molière, the Festival international de la chanson de Granby, the Théâtre Français de Toronto, and the Nouvelle Scène Gilles Desjardins.

The Centre Culturel Frontenac has been an inclusive convener and promoter of French arts and culture in the Kingston community since 1980. We aim to offer strong artistic moments for Francophones and French-language enthusiast through our diverse and innovative artistic events, cultural and artistic workshops for youth as well as the publication of the only French newspaper in Kingston, L’Informel. The CCF is a community hub of gathering and sharing.

“The CCF is very proud to accept this prize that highlights excellence in our work of the promotion of Francophone culture. This recognition rewards the efforts and engagement of everybody who has helped the CCF to fulfill its mission since the start. The CCF would like to thank Impératif français and its deciding committee for this prize”
