By its nature, the English-speaking community in Quebec is a mixed bag. Although it is linked by language and by certain historic, social, and political characteristics, in reality the community is a patchwork of distinct ethnic and regional groups- some with surprisingly unique histories, cultures, and outlooks. In recognition of the variety of experiences that make up the province’s English-speaking population, The Quebec Anglophone Heritage Network (QAHN) has received funding of $141,280 over two years through the Department of Canadian Heritage's Official Languages Funding Program, Community Life Component, for the project "Diversity & Achievement in Anglophone Quebec". Over the course of 15 months, the project will explore the historic and ever-evolving make-up of Quebec's English-speaking communities by examining their cultural, ethnic, and geographic diversity.
