Welcome to the Guy-Lacombe Institute of the Family website!

We are a Family Resource Center in the Alberta Family Resource Network. We provide support to French-speaking families in Edmonton, and in northern Alberta.

We also offer certain paid services, including a French-language library and toy library, and after-school childcare.

Our Vision Mandate Mission


The Guy-Lacombe Family Institute is committed to helping families in Alberta optimize their knowledge, skills and competencies in French to achieve their well-being.


Thanks to families who thrive in French, the Francophone community of Alberta is strong, dynamic, visible and enriches society as a whole.


The Guy-Lacombe Family Institute accomplishes its mission by intervening in the following fields:

  • Support for families in their growth: personal and social, cultural, identity and linguistic.
  • Parenting skills education.
  • Family resource center.
  • Integration and reintegration of French into the home in terms of identity, culture, sense of belonging.
  • Promotion of the mental and physical health of the family in terms of prevention, early detection and intervention.
