Abstract

In the first part of the article, the authors provide a general overview of Québec francophones’ and anglophones’ attendance of schools belonging to the other linguistic sector. The magnitude of the phenomenon, its variations (educational levels; public or private school systems; regions) and its different impacts on the receiving sectors are discussed. In the second part, the authors focus on Montréal in taking, as their unit of analysis, schools with linguistically mixed clienteles whose specific profile (geographic location; private or public affiliation; level of ethnic concentration and socio-economic deprivation) is described. The authors conclude with a preliminary reflection on the significance, for ethnic relations, of linguistic crossovers within the Québec public school system.
