Kapuskasing will continue to do their part in supporting the francophone communities and culture as a whole.

The town of Kapuskasing is supporting the Francophone Community Grants Program in the amount of $1,000 annually over the next two years.

Chair of Finance Dave Plourde says the support will be a combination of cash and resources or services.

Plourde says without the support of Kapuskasing the grant program would not be able to continue with the same success.

The Francophone Community Grans Program supports local, regional and provincial initiatives including community events that involve francophone communities.
