The English-speaking Communities of Quebec are at a cross-road with regards to their demographic, linguistic, social and economic development within the only French majority society in North America. This is the first of a series of research conferences designed to take stock of the vitality and future prospects of the English-speaking communities of Quebec. This first multidisciplinary conference will provide a general overview of existing research concerning the English-speaking communities of Quebec and will seek to identify important research themes for the future including new funding opportunities. Upcoming conferences on the English-speaking communities of Quebec will focus on specific research themes such as education, health, demolinguistic issues, ethnocultural diversity, municipal affairs, social and economic development.
The conference is divided into four symposia as follows:
Symposium 1: Demolinguistic Trends and Evolving Identities
Symposium 2: A Sense of Place - Montreal and the Regions
Symposium 3: Institutions and Services
Symposium 4: Towards a Research Agenda for the Study of English-speaking Quebec
This bilingual conference will provide simultaneous translation.
