ABSTRACT
The central issue of francophone community vitality is whether the current generation of francophone youth will transmit a sense of identity to their children. During the last four decades, significant changes in opportunities for schooling, social advancement and legal recognition of minority rights have helped smooth the way for minority youth. At the same time, demographic decline and a host of other factors pose extraordinary challenges, not the least of which is the fact that progressively larger numbers of francophone children are born in families with one francophone and one non-francophone parent. The essay examines the challenges and forecasts an optimistic outcome where today's youth will transmit to their children an evolved, dynamic culture that is adapted to new social realities.
