Quebec Roots : Strengthening Communities



What is Quebec Roots?

Since 2000, Blue Metropolis has reached over 17,700 students in 850 schools, offering 45 different educational programmes, all with a focus on reading and writing. Quebec Roots is undoubtedly our flagship educational programme. Supported since 2005 by the Ministère de l’Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport, Quebec Roots has not only given a voice to students across Quebec, but has allowed them to express themselves freely on such important issues as bullying and homophobia. Developed primarily in order to stimulate an interest in writing, the programme is linked to the school curriculum, promotes the development of several cross-disciplinary skills and, ultimately, provides support to young people to remain in school. Quebec Roots also encourages bridge-building between cultures by assembling writing and photography by young Quebec anglophones in an exhibition that is open to the general public, during the Blue Metropolis International Literary Festival.
