French Culture

Franco Ontarian Flag

The Francophone community played an important role in the history of Kirkland Lake. Their hard work and perseverance helped turn a rough and tumble gold mining camp into one of the best little towns in Northern Ontario. Their contributions in the arts, sports and business helped the community prosper. And their sheer vibrancy and zest for life made KL one of the best places to live.

Francophone Ontarians comprise roughly 20% of the Kirkland Lake’s population. It is very active, as is reflected in the number of Francophone organizations available locally.
