La Maison de la Francophonie, Vancouver

Located at 1555 West 7th Avenue in Vancouver, this place is considered the cultural and administrative hub of the Lower Mainland’s Francophone community. In addition to the Café Salade de Fruits restaurant and the Théâtre la Seizième (Studio 16), this location houses the following Francophone organizations:
• Association des juristes d’expression française de la Colombie-Britannique
• Centre culturel francophone de Vancouver
• Chambre de commerce francophone de Vancouver (CCF Vancouver)
• Conseil culturel et artistique francophone de la Colombie-Britannique (CCAFCB)
• Conseil jeunesse francophone de la Colombie-Britannique (CJFCB)
• Collège Éducacentre
• L’Express du Pacifique
• Fédération des francophones de la Colombie-Britannique (FFCB)
• Fédération des parents francophones de la Colombie-Britannique (FPFCB)
• Réseau-Femmes Colombie-Britannique
• Société de développement économique de la Colombie-Britannique (SDECB)
• Société historique francophone de la Colombie-Britannique (SHFCB)

The building itself was purchased by the Francophone community from an architectural firm that built and operated it, and re-opened in 1990 as La Maison de la francophonie. This place is valued for its social and cultural concentration, and its services to support the Francophone community. It is also representative of the continuing evolution of this community throughout British Columbia, and is considered by many as the current day iteration to what was once known as the Francophone Village.
