French-Language Education in Halifax

The first French-language school in the Halifax Region, École du Carrefour was founded together with the community organization Conseil Communautaire du Grand-Havre in 1991 in Dartmouth thanks to the joint efforts of community leaders. Following the creation of the provincial French school board, Conseil scolaire acadien provincial in 1996, in order to meet to needs of an increasing number of students, more French-language schools open their doors in HRM: École Bois-Joli (Dartmouth) in 1999, École Beaubassin (Halifax) in 2000, École du Sommet (Halifax) in 2010, École des Beaux-Marais (West Chezztcook) in 2011, École du Grand-Portage (Lower Sackville) in 2014, École Mer et Monde (Halifax) in 2018; École secondaire Mosaïque in 2020.

Université Sainte-Anne, with its main campus in Church Point, has a satellite campus in downtown Halifax, offering post-secondary education in French.
