About the event

 

The passing of Bill 21 in Quebec has sparked political debate across the country about the Canadian values of multiculturalism.

Over the years, Quebec has utilized two different approaches to addressing diversity: interculturalism and laicity. Bill 21 is an example of laicity, also known as state secularism, in practice.

- What is laicity?

- How does it differ from interculturalism? and

- What does the future of diversity in Quebec look like?

Join UR POLIS, RPIRG, and Dr. Arjun Tremblay, Assistant Professor in the Department of Politics and International Studies, for a conversation on this topic.
