The need for English-language education in Quebec: Editorial

February 1, 2021

The Montreal Gazette Editorial Board has written an editorial about the challenges faced by English-language educational institutions. The article states that English cegeps have been targeted with admission restrictions or diminished funding because they are seen as “vectors of anglicization,” but that the number of people choosing English cegeps is increasing. The authors argue that strengthening English education options is also valuable to the Quebec community and encourages young people to stay within their communities. The article concludes by calling for English educational institutions to be supported with resources and leadership so that they can contribute to the province. Montreal Gazette (QC)
