Welcome

The Association fransaskoise de Zenon Park (AFZP) has been serving the French-speaking community of Zenon Park – and region – for nearly forty years. The AFZP’s mission is to ensure the vitality of the local French community and to promote its development. This centennial community was founded in 1910 by French Canadian and Franco-American pioneers who came to Saskatchewan looking for a better future for their families. It is their perseverance, their resourcefulness, and their Franco-Catholic values that​​ laid the foundation of this inspiring agricultural community.

Our ancestors would be proud to see that Zenon Park is still today a vibrant bilingual community. We are proud of Zenon Park’s French history and cultural diversity, proud to belong to Saskatchewan’s Fransaskois community. We cordially invite all of you to come say “bonjour” and discover for yourselves what makes this French town so friendly!

Our NEW Website!

A TEAM EFFORT

Here it is! The AFZP is proud to be able to present its new website to you! We wish to thank the team at Marchildon Media for all the amazing work they’ve done to build this new website. We believe that this site truly reflects Zenon Park’s French community. We would like to acknowledge the help and support of AFZP’s Director, Danièle Lebel, the AFZP board members, especially Board President, Gisèle Yarbrough, as well as CÉCS Economic Development Advisor, Marguerite Tkachuk. We would also like to acknowledge Heritage Canada for its financial support in this endeavour.

If you want to discover all the secrets of the site, you just have to roll your mouse to the top of the page and click on each of the tabs. So, time to help yourself to a cup of coffee and go DISCOVER our new website!
