In Alberta, French was brought to the province by the fur traders and was the first European language spoken here. There are approximately 265 000 native French speakers (2% of the total population) in Alberta and the number of proficient French speakers is on the increase. In Lethbridge, where the coulees dividing the city are named after the French verb “couler” (to flow), the French language and Francophile community is alive and well.
