The Literacy and Essential Skills Needs of Quebec's Anglophone Adults (2012)

This document describes a project, carried out between October 2010 and August 2011, to find out more about the literacy and essential skills (LES) needs of Anglophone adults living in Quebec.

In the first stage of the project, researchers collected, summarized and analyzed existing literature, surveys, and unpublished data on the Anglophone community in Quebec, with particular reference to LES and related issues. This literature review included work published since 2000, but concentrated on studies produced since 2006.

During the second stage, a researcher asked key informants, individually or in focus groups, to reflect on what they considered the most important changes in Quebec Anglophone literacy over the preceding 10 years. There was also a focus group of nine English-language literacy workers.

Both stages of the project revealed differences between the composition and needs of Anglophone populations in Montreal and in other regions of Quebec. In Montreal, the English-speaking community has grown much more diverse in the past 20 years, with a large visible minority component and a growing number of Aboriginal Anglophones. By contrast, Anglophone communities in the regions remain quite homogeneous.
