The Initiative

Our co-founders observed a lack of opportunities to engage with French culture in Canada. They created a chance to showcase the best of France to Canadians through virtual and in-person experiences. ‍We created the event Best of France to support all these ideas under one initiative.

Best of France’s mission is to develop French culture in Canada through its best facets: Gastronomy, Wines, Tourism, and Education. Best of France is more than just an event; it is an opportunity to reinforce relationships between French and Canadian companies.

Best of France organizes yearly multi-day fairs in Canadian cities focusing on France as the prime theme. The first edition of this event will be held virtually from Vancouver in June 2021.

The 2021 Event

Best of France adapted its format for June 2021 in light of COVID-19 restrictions. Best of France developed an exciting hybrid program. The hybrid event will bring together in-person exchanges with the support of interactive tools and virtual meetings. Visitors will actively participate in the event we created. We are passionate about bringing Canadians the best of French culture, cuisine and education in this unique exhibition.

For Exhibitors

As an exhibitor, it gives you the opportunity to leverage your presence in Canada both physically (pop-up store, wine tasting, brochures, gourmet boxes) and virtually (networking, conferences, webinars, live discussions).

For Visitors

As a visitor, it gives you a unique opportunity to discover French companies, products and services, as well as to develop your portfolio and partnerships with both up-and-coming and major players.

A great initiative

"The strong relations between France and Canada can still be developed intensively and particularly with Western Canada, which offers real potential and opportunities in all areas.

That is why I encourage all those who want to seize these new opportunities in terms of jobs, investment, exchanges, and innovation to participate in the great initiative of Best of France.

Together, we will be able to promote French expertise and know-how in Vancouver and on the west coast of the Pacific, and therefore throughout Canada by being actors of a diversified growth and more than ever necessary."
