CNFS – Consortium national de formation en santé

The CNFS – An exceptional strategic alliance

The CNFS is a pan-Canadian group of 11 universities and colleges that offer French-language education in various health disciplines, as well as regional partners that facilitate access to these training programs across the country. Since April 1, 2015, the CNFS has been operating under the umbrella of the Association des collèges et universités de la francophonie canadienne (ACUFC). The CNFS contributed greatly to the creation of the ACUFC and has retained its corporate identity and operational model within the new association.

This exceptional alliance improves access to quality French-language healthcare services tailored to the needs of Francophone minority communities by increasing the number of professionals able to offer these services. In this way, the CNFS contributes significantly to the wellness and development of these communities across the country.
