Bilingual? More info for you!
If you are a bilingual family or if you understand both official languages, you may be interested in knowing that two spouses can register individually, one indicating "English" as their preferred language of communication, and the other "French". This will allow your family to receive all of our email communications in both languages.

But first you have to pack and travel to the place(s) you have chosen - a learning experience all its own! Packing and travelling just may fit under the 'character training' subject. So let's start with British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan.
