The Creative Economy and the English Speaking Communities in Quebec : Report Submitted to Industry Canada by Tracy Zhang on Behalf of the Quebec English-speaking Communities Research Network (QUESCREN)
The Creative Economy and English-Speaking Communities in Quebec presents preliminary research results based on a focus group, private key informant interviews, and bibliographical research. It demonstrates that the concepts of the creative economy are useful in charting cultural and economic development for the English-speaking communities in Quebec (ESCQ).
The English-speaking population in Quebec forms the largest provincial Official Language Minority Community in Canada. In recent decades, the composition of this population has become increasingly complex and multicultural. Parallel to this demographic shift, the influence of English-language Quebec culture has also evolved. English-speakers are said to have a high participation rate in the arts, culture and heritage sectors. In this context, organizations from these sectors are increasingly involved in supporting the socioeconomic development of the ESCQ. This report reflects growing concerns on the part of representatives of some of these organizations who participated in the study over how to apply the creative economy theory to generate effective models of cultural-economic development for the ESCQ.
