QC considers bill to cap enrollment at English language cégeps

February 22, 2021

The Government of Quebec is considering implementing a bill that will cap seats available at English language cégeps. CBC says that this would be done to prevent Francophones from going to English cégeps, with the intention of strengthening the French language. “I understand that some francophones would like to learn English by going to colleges, but I understand also … that French is fragile,” said QC Premier François Legault. Bernard Tremblay, president of Quebec’s federation of cegeps, warns that this plan may backfire if students choose to leave Quebec to access English language education. Montreal Gazette | CBC (QC)
