ABSTRACT
The article presents the personal reflections of Raymond M. Hébert, the coordinator of the Masters in Canadian studies at the Collège universitaire de Saint-Boniface, in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Hébert discusses the recognition of the French-speaking linguistic minority community in the province of Manitoba, the history of this group, and the education of young French-speakers. Hébert sees two events as key to the status of French in the province. These events were the adoption of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms in 1982 and the creation of a French-speaking schools division in the Manitoban provincial government in 1994.
