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 POPULAR SITE!

The AFZP website has received nearly 1,200 visitors since its launch in August 2020. Last month (May 2021), 132 people visited our website. And here we are at 600 visitors already in 2021!

Please feel free to share our beautiful site with your family and friends. It’s a great way to showcase our amazing community, culture, businesses, artists and tourist attractions.

We wish to thank the team at Marchildon Media for creating a website that reflects the Francophone community of Zenon Park.

This summer, we invite everyone to come and discover us!
