Collège des chaires de recherche sur le monde francophone

The Collège des chaires de recherche sur le monde francophone (CCRMF) is open to extensive collaboration on projects involving the French-speaking world or, more broadly, research in French.

About us

The University of Ottawa’s Francophone mission is central to its history and identity. In 2003, the University created the Research Chair in Canadian Francophonie program, which now coordinated by the CCRMF.

The renewal and development of the Chaires de recherche sur le monde francophone (CRMF) program and the creation of new research chairs in 2019 are proof of the University’s intention to build on its heritage of teaching and research for the community in Ontario, across Canada and abroad.

Today, the CCRMF plays an active role within the University, contributing to the excellence of Francophone research and the dissemination of scholarly work in French to many partners.

The CCRMF helps create an environment that furthers educational and scholarly experiences for a multicultural Francophone community.

“We are home to high-quality researchers studying many topical questions. Together, they’re helping to meet the challenges facing research in French and on the French-speaking world.”

Chaires de recherche sur le monde francophone

The Chaires de recherche sur le monde francophone program brings together more than fifteen researchers, including guests. It assists with the organization of research activities, promotion of research on the Francophonie and requests for national and international research grants.

The chairholders help internationalize research by developing scholarly relationships with members of the Francophonie in Ontario and throughout Canada and with research institutes in many French-speaking countries.

The benefits of these research chairs include the creation of wide-reaching networks of researchers who help train hundreds of graduate and postdoctoral students.
