The CAQ government recently tabled “Bill n°40 : An Act to amend mainly the Education Act with regard to school organization and governance.” Only a handful of groups representing Quebec’s English-speaking minority were invited to appear during limited hearings before the Committee on Culture and Education at the National Assembly
APPELE-Québec is a broad-based alliance to promote the continued existence of English school boards governed by school board commissioners democratically elected by the English-speaking community at large. It believes that more of our voices need to be heard on the most significant transformations of our school system since the creation of linguistic school boards in 1988.Read more

We genuinely want QCGN not only to survive this storm but to emerge more united and representative than ever. We would like to see a return to constructive deliberation around the board table on behalf of the entire English Speaking Community”.

The Roadmap to Leadership Development Training
Saturday, November 9, 2019
9:00am – 4:00pm
Montreal, Quebec, Canada
|An introduction to the philosophy of Leading from Above the Line: a principle grounded approach to leadership and personal development|
Why is value-based leadership important?
Aspiring leaders today seek a value-based social and organizational framework which will better reflect fairness in relation to their time/contribution and integrity. This training begins this important conversation on how to promote and sustain value-based leadership in our society, communities and organizations. Several issues within our community often deny the importance of participatory, democratic, and value based governance and leadership which limits the involvement of a broad-cross section of the community in change efforts which are sustainable.Read more

Is The Montreal Police Service Really Serious About Working Towards Combating Racism? Reports Show ‘Systemic Biases’, When It Comes To Race, Still Exist In The Force
There is a familiar French expression, “plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose”, which when translated says, the more things change the more they remain the same. Following the recent announcement of a class action suit, along with new allegations of racial profiling, the Montreal Police Service (SPVM) disclosed a new strategy, aimed at eliminating racial and social profiling.
According to Alex Norris, Chairperson of the Public Security Committee, the plan is the most ambitious and comprehensive, far-reaching plan that the SPVM has ever adopted to combat and prevent racial and social profiling.Read more
Information and Program
October 24 – 26, 2019
Location: Mileux Institute, EV 11.45
In partnership with EMMA (Université Paul-Valéry Montpellier 3), MIGRINTER (CNRS-Université de Poitiers) and La Maison Française d’Oxford
After conferences in Montpellier, Poitiers and La Réunion (France, 2015, 2016 and 2018), as well as Kolkata (India, 2018) and Purchase (NY, USA, 2019), this is the 6th opus of this conference cycle in Montreal, Concordia University. An “ecotone” initially designates a transitional area between two ecosystems, for example between land and sea. The “Ecotones” program (2015-2020) is a cycle of conferences which aims to borrow this term traditionally used in geography and ecology and to broaden the concept by applying it to other disciplines in the social sciences and the humanities. An “ecotone” can thus also be understood as a cultural space of encounters, conflicts, and renewal between several communities. This interdisciplinary conference will more specifically focus on colonial and postcolonial port cities as ecotonic dialectics between places and non-places.
Commonly understood, a port is the site where ships’ passengers enter or exit, and cargo is loaded or unloaded. Thus, it represents the flow of people and exchange of goods, in the age of sail, as well as in the contemporary globalized world. The unbounded space of the port offers opportunities to explore “discontinuous histories” of port cities, and “its interfaces with the wider world” (Gilroy 1993), as a site that decentres the nation through its slippery flows. In addition, port cities anchor urban development around shipping routes and international trade. Ports of call offer the hope of safe harbours for migrants, a refuge in a storm, or alternatively a vulnerable site for colonial concessions or gateways that must be regulated or controlled. Ports are also passages of communications. In computer networking, a port is a nodal point of communication through which data flows, a portal to information. Lastly port cities occupy that liminal space between land and water, an in-between ecotonic zone of transition.
The Quebec Writers’ Federation is launching a pilot initiative to create opportunities for promising writers and playwrights who, because of their ethnic or racial profile, have faced systemic and/or financial barriers to engaging in professional development activities. Our goal is to give a select group of literary artists additional training, skills, and professional credentials to help level the playing field and improve their career opportunities.Read more
