ABSTRACT
The Albertan example provides an astonishing case about the vitality and the future of French-speaking minorities. Firstly, since more than a century, young Albertans have been politically active, even during the very dark periods during the middle of the 20th century. This tendency towards mobilization reflected a tendency towards engagement among the French-speaking Albertan population in general. Today, the French-speaking population in Alberta has access to important institutions and does not seem at all on the way towards dying out. An important challenge however, during the upcoming years, will be to resolve governance questions related to French-speaking public schools to better adapt them to the needs of the new century.
