Vision

Our vision is of a healthy, complete and accessible English-language education system in Quebec. It ensures attachment to the province and sustains and promotes the multifaceted vitality of its English-speaking communities.

Mission

Supporting Quebec’s English-language education system through research, knowledge mobilization, and educational activities.

Biennial Forums: 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.

Research Action Plan

ILET promotes research on Quebec’s English-speaking communities through its active support for QUESCREN’s development of: 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. 

ILET Impact Project 

Educational professionals have repeatedly identified the need for easier access to research related to Quebec’s English-language education sector. The ILET Impact Project, which QUESCREN initiated in the fall of 2022, responds to that need.

The project entails the creation of a website dedicated to the dissemination of research and knowledge on the sector. This engaging online space—the first of its kind in the province—will gather original content, activities and research-based resources from all levels of education. These will connect researchers to practitioners, decision-makers and other stakeholders in the field of education.

ILET Impact aims to raise awareness and understanding, among a broad audience, of priority issues for Quebec's official language minority community and its educational ecosystem. Such issues include decreased enrollment in schools, particularly in rural and remote areas; high rates of outmigration of bilingual university graduates from the province; and the effects of Quebec government's laws and policies on the institutional vitality of education. Ensuring access to effective evidence-based knowledge through the ILET Impact project, will go a long way towards addressing these real-world concerns and informing future educational policy and programming.

The ILET Impact Project is funded by the Government of Canada.
