The Canadian Francophone Games are among the largest gatherings of Canada’s French-speaking youth.
In addition to encouraging hundreds of young people to exercise their talents in one of three sectors (art, leadership and sport), the Games showcase cultural pride, self-confidence and leadership abilities in a friendly, competitive setting.
The Games are held during the summer months every three years. Over 1,200 participants and more than 750 volunteers are expected for every edition of the Games.
The CFGames are organized based on the by and for youth principle and seek to comply with and contribute to the principles of subtainable development.
Henri the Husky sled dog was retired from sledding because he was too rambunctious. We adopted him for the CFGames.
An avid fan of youth gatherings, Henri has been rewarded many times for his loyalty towards Francophone Yukon. Since the very first CFGames in 1999, Henri the Husky has been our proud mascot.
In fact, he was the first mascot to receive an accreditation with photo, which is now a Team Yukon tradition.
One of Henri’s secret wishes is probably a race equal to his convictions, namely, a demonstration sled dog race at future CFGames.
