Research Action Plan

ILET promotes research on Quebec’s English-speaking communities through its active support for QUESCREN’s development of: a major research grant (SSHRC Partnership), biennial community-building forums, an online researcher directory, and other research-related activities. 

Educational Action Plan

To enhance Quebec’s English-speaking community vitality, ILET supports activities promoting the continuum of Quebec’s English-language educational offer and the collaboration of English-language educational institutions. 

Community Forum: Minority Community Vitality through Education

ILET’s first biennial community-building forum took place in October 2018 at Concordia University under the theme “Minority Community Vitality through Education.” This three-day event focused on the development of research teams around concrete projects, proposed strategies for improving the continuum of educational offer, and increased the synergy of educational networks around English-language community vitality in Quebec.
