Waves of change

Saison 1

3. The Third Wave, Classe d’accueil (1970-1995)

WEB AVAILABILITY :  1 week and 3 days  1 wk and 3 d

The period between the 1970 FLQ crisis and the second referendum in 1995 was intensely traumatic. Hundreds of thousands of Quebecers packed their bags and left. Meanwhile, a new wave of English-speaking immigrants arrived, fully aware of the social and political upheaval, and willing to adapt to the evolving social contract. Learning French became a priority -- in English schools for those permitted by Bill 101, or in French classes d’accueil.

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.
