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 Institut Guy-Lacombe de la famille equips Francophone and Francophile families in their development and fulfillment in French in a dynamic and visible Albertan community.

The IGLF accomplishes its mission by supporting families in the following fields:

  • Education in parenting skills
  • Child development
  • Support for adolescents
  • Library Service
  • Promotion and maintenance of the French language
  • Community engagement
