Text (application/pdf)


This study is a small scale ethnography of French nationals living in Quebec. Although there are French metropolitan institutions in Montreal, this group does not fit the usual concept of an ethnic community as they do not know each other and the French institutions serve the local community as well. I argue that the concept of transnational is a more appropriate term to describe these people as they invest much time and money in maintaining personal and economic links with France as well as taking advantage of the media links. Although Quebec has not been a French colony for over two hundred years, the French in the sample group have a similar relationship with France as did the former colonials.
