The city of Sudbury is a thriving and growing community, and is a centre of technology, education and health for the North. Its shopping centers, restaurants and arts facilities give it the feel of any large metropolis, while its many lakes and landscapes preserve the feeling of living in the great outdoors.
Sudbury also has an active French community. In fact, over 28 percent of Sudburians speak French as a first language, and roughly 40 percent of the population is bilingual. French theatre groups like le Théâtre du Nouvel-Ontario and French radio stations such as CHYC-FM are just a few of Sudbury’s French culture highlights.
