This two-arm mixed-method study assessed the discourse around the Quebec Charter and its impact
on the future of living together in Quebec. The first study used a qualitative design to thematically
and critically analyze discourses around the Charter and hate-based events/discourses targeting
minorities and published in official media. Results show that positions tend to be polarised and use
an ideological discourse based on overlapping of religion and gender equality with an underlying
association of religion with extremism and terrorism, thus targeting mainly Muslim communities
and more specifically, veiled women. The second study consisted of a web survey filled by a
targeted sample of 200 university students measuring discrimination, identity, psychological wellbeing
and perception of intercommunity relations. Data collection is underway and analyses will
consist of multiple regression predictive models.
