Join us online on Thursday, June 10th, 2021 at 12 noon for a celebration of Quebec’s English-speaking community. Exciting new videos and thought-provoking presentations created by six community groups over the past year will be debuted. These projects, involving hundreds of English-speaking Quebecers of all ages from around the province, were all inspired by the theme of Belonging.

Discover how Quebec’s English-speakers see themselves in surprising artistic creations from youth, poignant videos from the Black community, touching interviews with seniors, and much more!
