Y4Y Quebec Symbolism Project

Publié 2020-02-18

Our friends at Y4Y Quebec need your help!

The Y4Y Quebec Symbolism Project was inspired by the flags of the Canadian Francophonie to create the first official flag to represent the English-speaking community of Quebec! We are looking for you to get involved in the project by telling us the symbols that represent you and the English-speaking community of Quebec. Have your say today!

Suspension of French Second-language Courses

Publié 2019-12-29

Dear Students of the RAWQ FSL Courses,

It is with great regret that I inform you that the Regional Association of West Quebecers is postponing the next session of our French second-language courses, which was to take place this winter. Due to unforeseen budgetary constraints, we are unable to hold the session.

We will resume the courses as soon as possible; however we do not anticipate that that will be before the autumn of 2020. Student information will be kept, including the information of those who had registered for the cancelled session. We will ensure that they have priority when the courses resume. Should there be any further change in the status of the Program, the Association will notify you all.

Thank you for your participation thus far, and for your patience and understanding going forward. We look forward to seeing you in the fall of 2020.
