Workshop | "Le Québec et la francophonie canadienne : un avant et un après Doug Ford?"

January 31, 2019

The Ontario Premier's decision on November 15, 2018, to abolish the Office of the Commissioner of French Language Services and the position of French Language Commissioner, and to eliminate funding for the Université de l'Ontario français, the Centre de ressources pédagogiques franco-ontarien for the production of three French-language magazines and the Théâtre de la Nouvelle-Scène in Ottawa, has angered and mobilized all Francophones in Canada. Is this pan-Canadian solidarity movement a sign of a before and after for Doug Ford in relations between Francophones across the country, particularly with Quebec?

Event organized by the Chaires de recherche sur la francophonie canadienne and the Centre for Interdisciplinary Reasearch on Citizenship and Minorities (CIRCEM).
