As a non-profit organization that keeps growing with the support of our community, ELAN is proud to announce that we are marking our 15th Anniversary this year!

Since its foundation in 2004, the English Language Arts Network (ELAN) has served as a platform for thousands of English-language artists of all disciplines from across Quebec to share expertise and resources, build audiences and alliances, seek support, and make common cause with the Francophone arts community. We would like to thank all our past and present members for your trust and support, and to invite you to our upcoming Annual General Meeting and anniversary celebration!

At the AGM, we will elect new board members and share updates on ELAN’s activities. This event is free and open to all! ELAN members are also eligible to nominate board members and to vote. Click here to view the Board Nomination Form.

The party after our AGM will feature short performances in dance, theatre, music, spoken word/poetry and video art from our artist members! Refreshments will be served.

The schedule of the evening is as following:

6:00-6:30 PM: Welcome and Registration
6:30-8:00 PM: Business Meeting and Elections
8:00-10:00 PM: 15th Anniversary Party

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.
