Canada: Bill 96 implementation may see a decline in Quebec English-language college courses

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 15 Mar 2023, 11:44 pm

Montreal/IBNS: Quebec‘s new French-language law (Bill-96) may reportedly see a cut in the province's English-language colleges.

This change will force Quebec’s students to take more French courses and leave out other languages, endangering language departments at English colleges such as Vanier College.

Starting in the fall, French-speaking and allophone students, not possessing English eligibility certificates will be required to take a French exam to graduate, meaning they will have to take additional French courses.

Whereas English-speaking students with certificates will not have to take a French exam. They will be required to take five courses in French as of Fall 2024.

Instead of two complimentary English classes, students will soon only have one English class, and the second class will now have to be in French.

Though Vanier College will reportedly follow the new law, Vanier faculty of the arts, business and social sciences dean Alena Perout was reported saying that imposition of the bill shows a lack of consideration.
