ACFOMI is a member of the ‘Réseau d’Action Communautaire Francophone de l’Ontario’.

The ‘Réseau ACFO’ has five courses of action: 

Welcome centre: Serve as the gateway to the Francophone community

Francophones are welcomed into the community and are aware of the different services available to them.
