HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:
Over the past decades, Francophones in Quebec have taken formal steps to preserve and promote their language and culture. To most English-speaking youth growing up in Quebec today, this makes sense and we agree that steps should be taken to protect Quebec’s uniqueness in North America. However, young English-speakers living in Quebec – from Montreal to the North Shore to the Gaspe – face their own set of unique challenges. In small English-speaking pockets scattered throughout the province, young English-speakers struggle to become bilingual, access services, create strong ties with their communities, participate in Quebec society and define their own identities.
The members of the Quebec Community Groups Network (QCGN) Youth Standing Committee have worked together over the last year to ensure that this document represents the perspectives of as many youth as possible from a wide array of regions and backgrounds. We have also worked to ensure that the process has been directed by youth and that the voices we have heard are heard by others as well.
