As a unique nation within Canada, our work in Quebec recognizes the contextual distinctiveness of communities across the province. With the support of local community leaders, our work considers the following details about the province:

  • The realities of Francophone, Anglophone, Allophone, bilingual, and multilingual communities in the province;
  • The Catholic heritage of the province and the religious and non-religious diversity across the province today;
  • Provincial laws and regulations; and,
  • The population demography.
