Paths to Post-Nationalism

Canadian language policy from the 1960s on has been based on the concept of “linguistic duality.” Within the frame of the welfare state, the federal government provided funds for the maintenance of minority official languages and cultures and, in doing so, brought into being a nationwide network of francophone minority institutions and cultural associations. This chapter follows the elite of a typical francophone village in Ontario as it copes with the shift of state discourse and resource distribution from liberal welfarism concerns with rights to preservation of identity and funding of cultural activities to neoliberal concerns with economic value and development, a shift intensifying the commodification of language and culture.

Keywords:   ontario, neoliberalism, commodification, linguistic minorities, community economic development, language rights
