Educational activities

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. ILET will organize a workshop on educational continuum and collaboration as part of its 2018 biennial forum.

Community Forum: Minority Community Vitality through Education

ILET’s first biennial community-building forum will take place in November 2018 at Concordia University under the theme “Minority Community Vitality through Education.” This three-day event will lead to the development of research teams around concrete projects, propose strategies for improving the continuum of educational offer, and increase the synergy and focus of educational networks around English-language community vitality in Quebec.
