Mémoire du Quebec Community Groups Network CGN à la Commission de la culture et de l’éducation Consultations particulières sur le projet de loi 40 : Loi modifiant principalement la Loi sur l’instruction publique relativement à l’organisation et à la gouvernance scolaires

Le Quebec Community Groups Network (QCGN) n’a pas été invité à comparaître devant la Commission dans le cadre de ses consultations particulières sur le projet de loi 40. Néanmoins, le QCGN soumet le présent mémoire à la Commission.

En plus d’offrir un enseignement d’excellente qualité aux élèves, les écoles publiques anglophones ont pour mission de préserver et de promouvoir la langue et la culture distinctes du Québec d’expression anglaise. Les écoles sont des institutions essentielles et centrales de la communauté d’expression anglaise du Québec. Le gouvernement du Québec doit ainsi reconnaître et appuyer les droits linguistiques et culturels de cette communauté. La gestion et le contrôle de nos établissements d’enseignement ne peuvent être limités unilatéralement.

Léger poll conducted for the Association of Canadian Studies and QCGN: Multiculturalism versus Interculturalism: Myth and Reality

June 27,  marks Canadian Multiculturalism Day. In Quebec, policy-makers and intellectuals have since the introduction of federal multicultural policy expressed much ambivalence about multiculturalism and over the since the 1990’s have insisted that Quebec rejects multiculturalism and rather promotes interculturalism. It suggests that interculturalism promotes interaction between communities in contrast with multiculturalism that purportedly promotes ethnic specificity. Presumably the intercultural model gives rise to divergent approaches to newcomer adaptation with a more integrationist and less accommodation of cultural difference. In this third part of the series on difference and similarity in views between Quebec francophone and anglophone we look at issues of immigration, diversity and accommodation. As we observe the results point to some of the sharpest differences in attitudes. They also reveal that the independent of linguistic background, Quebecers do not see much difference between multiculturalism and interculturalism despite years of insistence that the two purported models offer distinct messages.

The survey was conducted by the firm Leger Marketing for the Association for Canadian Studies and the Quebec Community Groups Network with a national sample 1226 Quebecers 871 francophones 275 anglophones and 106 allophones and was conducted between May 14 and may 17 2018 via web panel with a probabilistic margin of error of 3.5 points 19 times out of 20.

Léger poll conducted for the Assocation of Canadian Studies and QCGN: Quebecers Attachment to Canada: One year after the 150th

The weekend of July 1 2018, marks the 151st birthday of Canada and around the country there will be celebrations of Canada Day. Last year’s 150th anniversary of Confederation saw considerable commemorative activity around July 1 although participation in Quebec remained relatively lower profile than it elsewhere in the country. It’s difficult to assess the impact of the anniversary on attachment to Canada in Quebec or elsewhere though some surveys initially suggested a boost in such feeling. One year later the Association for Canadian Studies-QCGN-Léger Marketing survey points to a pattern of continued stability in levels of attachment to Canada on the part of Quebecers and a persistent gap between francophones and non-francophones in that regard.

The survey was conducted by the firm Léger Marketing for the Association for Canadian Studies and the Quebec Community Groups Network with a national sample 1226 Quebecers 871 francophones 275 anglophones and 106 allophones and was conducted between May 14th and  may 17th  2018 via web panel with a probabilistic margin of error of 3.5 points 19 times out of 20.
