The Government of Canada is updating its cultural policy, encouraging Canadians to join the conversation and have their say on how to strengthen the creation, discovery and export of Canadian content in a digital world.

Changes in the production and distribution of local content will directly affect Quebec’s English-language artists. ELAN wants to make sure your voice is heard.

At this meeting, we’ll brief you on the issues at stake and invite you to share your thoughts. ELAN will incorporate insights and feedback from the discussion into our brief to be submitted to Canadian Heritage.

Even if you can’t attend, we encourage you to share your thoughts online, use the hashtag #DigiCanCon on social media, and send us your feedback: admin@quebec-elan.org. Check out what Canadians are saying so far.

ELAN is an official minority language organization within a country that recognizes two languages as official. ELAN is located in Tiohtiak:ke, the original name for Montreal in Kanien’kéha, the language of the Mohawk—also known as Mooniyang, which is the Anishinaabeg name given to the city by the Algonquin. While we are based in this city, our projects have also taken place in many regions across Quebec.

We acknowledge the colonial origin of English and French in Canada, and recognize that both languages benefit from official status throughout the land. The province that we know as Quebec is an amalgamation of the traditional territories of the Innu and Inuit nations, Algonquian nations, as well as the Mohawk nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. Kanien’kéha and Anishinaabeg are but two of the original languages of this province; Atikamekw, Cree, Inuktitut, and Innu-aimun are also among the many Indigenous languages spoken across Quebec as majority languages, all well before French and English.

ELAN acknowledges the important work being done by First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples to revive the traditional languages of these territories, and their advocacy for the official status of Indigenous languages.
