For my first issue as editor of QuÃ©bec Studies I am delighted to present this
special dossier on francophone Ontario compiled and edited by Professor
Lucie Hotte of the University of Ottawa. I cannot thank her enough for assembling these articles, shepherding them through the review process, and
editing the final versions. I also want to thank her assistants, Caroline Boudreau and Danica Vaillancourt, who did much of the tedious editorial work.
I am deeply indebted to a number of reviewers with expertise on francophone Ontario who were willing to assist the editorial board in evaluating
these articles. Their contributions to this issue are greatly appreciated.
