Waves of change

Saison 1

1. The First Wave, 1820-1945 – Colliding Solitudes

The first communities of English speakers in Quebec were the English, Irish and Scottish. By the mid-19th century, they formed the majority of Montreal’s population, which is why they are commemorated on Montreal’s coat-of arms. Other early communities whose children were educated in the Protestant (English) school system were Jewish, Black and Chinese immigrants. Despite prevailing myths, these groups were too diverse and divided to ever constitute a WASPy monolith.

About the show

Waves of Change is a 200-year oral history of Quebec’s English-speaking communities, recorded on the 50th anniversary of the FLQ crisis. Five episodes feature families that arrived in Quebec during successive waves of immigration. The historical Anglos pre-1945 – Colliding Solitudes; post-war Allophones 1945-70 – Le Vote Ethnique; the turbulent years 1970-1995 – Classe d’accueil; the new social contract years 1995-2010 – Crashing the Party; and recent arrivals 2010-20 – Invisible Hoops. The 54 interviews feature remarkably diverse, engaging and articulate eyewitnesses of Quebec history from an Anglo perspective. A special 6th episode features English-speaking communities from the Eastern Townships and West Quebec to the Gaspé and the remote Lower North Shore. These little-known communities have a fascinating story to tell about Regional Realities in Quebec.
