Do I have to BE in France for 3 weeks prior to my classes starting for the 2B Visa (Canada-France Youth Exchanges Agreement)?

This is a long shot, but I was hoping someone out there might know. On my visa application kit for my year abroad in France, it has the condition:
"Visa departure date to leave for France earlier than three weeks prior to the beginning of classes in France" (link to the full visa kit here
I initially thought this meant I would have to be in France 3 weeks prior to my classes starting, which struck me as ridiculous and unnecessary. Then I thought maybe it means that the visa application must be submitted earlier than 3 weeks prior to my classes starting. My dad thinks it might mean I have to be ABLE to be in France 3 weeks prior to classes, but I don't have to be.
I did email the consulate about this but I am getting antsy waiting over the weekend to hear the answer from them.
