Dawson prepares for impact of QC language reform law


Dawson College is preparing for the coming impact of Bill 96, the Government of Quebec’s new language reform law. Under Bill 96, students at English cégeps like Dawson will reportedly be required to take at least three 45-hour courses in French starting in Fall 2024. As a result, Dawson and other English cégeps are focused on restructuring their staff training, hiring processes, and curriculum. Dawson Director General Diane Gauvin said that they are currently assessing how many of their teachers will be able to teach in French and starting to arrange appropriate language training.
