January 30, 2019 - The National Organizing Committee of the Games of la Francophonie 2021 (CNJF) is disappointed with today’s announcement that the government of New Brunswick will be withdrawing as a funder for the Games of La Francophonie 2021. While the CNJF accepts the decision of the government of New Brunswick, we were hoping for a different outcome.

The CNJF still believes that it is possible to organize Games that will deliver international caliber experiences for participants, generate economic benefits for the province and host municipalities, as well as consolidate New Brunswick and Canada’s place on the international stage.

While we await next steps from the government of Canada on the future of the games in Canada, we remain committed to ensuring their success and will work with them to assess any possible options to keep the games in Canada.
