Name of creator
The Franco-Manitoban Society/Société franco-manitobaine (SFM) was established in 1968. Committed to the defence of Franco-Manitoban community it has its roots in the Association de l'ducation des Canadiens-francais du Manitoba, which was organized in 1916. The SFM is concerned with the demands and the legal controversies surrounding the recognition of the Francophone community's linguistic rights.
The fonds was donated to University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections in 1982 by Arthur Millward of St. John's College, University of Manitoba.
