 Anglophone[s] - Quebec History
To the extent that many anglophones were not Roman Catholics, and that non Catholic denominations were not as careful in keeping records, in duplicate, as the Catholic Church was, we are likely to be misestimating the anglophone population of Quebec, especially because it was a far more mobile population in Quebec than the francophone population.
Presently, on the basis of ethnic origins, the British are between 2.6 to 4.5% of the population of Quebec [the data is most fluctuating here because of the frequency of multiple answers]; by using mother tongue, the proportion rises to 8.8%.
This concentration, along with a long tradition of community involvement and philanthropy in the anglophone community, as well as the benevolent approach by the majority of francophones, has permitted anglophones to maintain social and educational services beyond what one might expect from a community accounting for only 8.8%-11% of the population of the province.
