Anglo-Quebec today: looking at community and schooling issues

Patricia Lamarre
Published Online: 2007-05-30 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/IJSL.2007.028


In the 1960s, the Anglophone community in Quebec tended to see itself as a “majority” group, despite their demographic weight within the province. Efforts to change the status of French and French speakers provoked a redefinition of the status of Anglophones and an important transformation of the community and of its institutions — transformations that are still ongoing. In this article, we take a look at the Anglo-Quebec community today, a community that is increasingly bilingual, multicultural, and hybrid, a community which is also in decline. We then discuss how this reflects on the challenges and issues facing the English school system — a school system mandated with ensuring the vitality of the official language minority, but also with the preparation of students for life in an increasingly French Quebec.
