Title
Decline of Enrolment in Quebec's English-Language School Sector
Abstract
The authors point out that the number of students enrolled in the English-language public and private sectors declined by 61.3% from 256,251 in the 1971-1972 school year to 99,042 in 2019-2020. Over the same time span, the enrolment rates in the French language public and private sectors in Quebec also experienced a decline: down 28.8% from 1,378,788 in 1971-1972 to 981,905 in 2019-2020. The decline in the Quebec's English-language sector has been over twice as pronounced as that of the province's French-language sector. In comparison, French official minority schools in the other provinces experienced a rapid increase in enrolment between 2000 and 2015.
