The 27th Edition of the BC Francophone Youth Games took place in Comox from the 17th to the 20th of May 2019!
The application period is now opened!
We receive each year more applications than spots available for this event. A selection committee is planning a meeting to determine the list of participants. It is always a really hard choice for the Youth Council to have to refuse some participants.
Do you have send your complete application ? You will receive an answer after the meeting of the committee.
WHAT IS THE SELECTION CRITERIA?
Every year we have a limited amount of available spots for the Youth Games*, so we follow a precise selection process
1. Submission of application documents (online form, consent form signed by your parents, and participation check);
3. Diversity of experience (of the Youth Games) and of the chosen components;
4. Embodiment of the values of the CJFCB;
5. Diversity of schools and of geographic locations;
6. Balance in age groups (14-18 year olds)
*Due to the large volume of applications, the participants who have not been accepted will be reimbursed only by check, from April 16th, 2018 onwards.
**No refunds after April 16, 2018.
We always try to make our events accessible to all, however due to budgetary reasons, it is likely that we will request further financial participation from participants living in distant or remote areas.
The Youth Council offers inclusive environments in its events.

• TRANSPORTATION OF YOUTH FROM DISTANT AND REMOTE AREAS
We try our best to make this event accessible to all. Certain participants, living in distant areas such as Northern British-Columbia or the Kootenay region have less access to these types of Francophone youth opportunities. Donations would allow for more youth from these regions to take part in these events.
• YOUTH ENGAGEMENT TOWARDS A GREEN MANDATE
The youth have mandated the CJFCB to be more “green” during our events. Donations would allow us to strengthen our green initiatives and reduce our environmental impact: waste reduction, purchasing reusable water bottles as promotional items (instead of plastic cups), other ecological and reusable promotional items, less paper consumption, becoming more digital, etc.
Thank you to our partners !
"A big THANKS to everyone who organized the 22nd edition of the francophone games and I hope to have the same experience next year!"
