Marc Arnal: Francophone Education in Western Canada

Duration: 7 minutes, 10 seconds

Dr. Marc Arnal, Dean of Campus Saint-Jean, University of Alberta, speaks to the importance of religion-based and post-secondary educational institutions to Francophone communities in western Canada. He discusses the psychological impacts of policies around French language education in public schools. The Official Languages Act in 1969 put the Francophonie in a new role—leaders promoting minority language rights, multiculturalism and respect for diversity nationally. (presentation by Marc Arnal, Ph.D. at the 2007 Alberta Education Social Studies Summer Institute)
