Biographical history

Paul Dubé est un Franco-albertain d'Edmonton. Dubé est présentement un professeur émérite au Campus Saint-Jean de l'université de l'Alberta et a eu un impact dans la communauté francophone.
Dubé était un de trois parents qui ont exprimés leurs mécontentement avec la qualité d'éducation francophone en Alberta et ont soumis une demande au ministre de l'éducation en 1982 en appui d'un conseil scolaire francophone autonome. Suite au rejet de la proposition par le ministre d'éducation, et un manque de support pour le conseil scolaire locale, Paul Dubé, Jean-Claude Mahé, et Angeline Martel on soumis le cas à la court en 1990. Ils ont soutenu que le gouvernement violait leur droit à un système d'éducation géré par des francophones sous la section 23 de la Charte des Droits et Libertés. La court a déterminé que la Charte garantie le droit à la représentation dans le conseil scolaire et le contrôle exclusif d'éducation des enfants, ou à un conseil scolaire séparé comme dicté par la population locale. La court a trouvé que dans ce cas, un conseil séparé n'était pas nécessaire; par contre, il doit y avoir une représentation sur le conseil actuel. Ceci a marqué une décision importante qui aura un gros impact dans plusieurs provinces.
Comme professeur, Dubé a aussi contribué beaucoup dans son domaine. Il est le co-auteur du Dictionary of Francophone Artists and Authors of Western Canada; il a co-édité quatre volumes dévoué au Western Canadian Francophonie (ACTS of CEFCO) et a publié environ 75 articles dans ce domaine de recherche. Autres oeuvres inclus: "Alberta Francophonie and Inclusion of Newcomers: Postmortem to a Debate on a Name Change"; "'Congolity' and identity building in Congolese media discourse"; et "Edmonton Area Francophone African Christian Churches and the Social and Individual integration of Newcomers”. Autres intérêts de recherches inclus la question d'inclusion des immigrants dans le contexte de communautés francophones, les concepts d'interculturalité et de transculturalité, la phénoménologie, les media, et l'immigration.

Paul Dubé is a Francophone Albertan from Edmonton. Currently Professor Emeritus at the University of Alberta’s Campus Saint Jean, Paul Dubé has made an impact in the francophone community.
Dube was one of three parents who, dissatisfied with the quality of French language education in Alberta, submitted a proposal to the Minister of Education in 1982 supporting an autonomous French school board. Following the dismissal of the proposal by the Minister of Education, and the local school board’s lack of support, Paul Dube, Jean-Claude Mahe, and Angeline Martel brought the case to court in 1990. They argued that the government was violating their right to a Francophone-run education system under section 23 of the Charter. The court found that the Charter guaranteed the right to representation on the school board and exclusive control over children’s education, or a separate board as the population of the area dictates. The court ruled that in this case, a separate board was not required; however, there must be representation on the current board. This marked a monumental decision that would have lasting impacts in many of the provinces.
As a professor, Dube has also made significant contributions to his field. He is co-author of the Dictionary of Francophone Artists and Authors of Western Canada; he has co-edited four volumes devoted to the Western Canadian Francophonie (ACTS of CEFCO) and published around 75 articles in this research area. Other works include: "Alberta Francophonie and Inclusion of Newcomers: Postmortem to a Debate on a Name Change"; "'Congolity' and identity building in Congolese media discourse"; and "Edmonton Area Francophone African Christian Churches and the Social and Individual integration of Newcomers”. Other research interests include the issue of the inclusion of immigrants in the context of French-speaking communities, the concepts of interculturality and transculturality, phenomenology, the media, and immigration.

Custodial history

Le but principal des Archives Saint-Jean était de préserver le matériel archivistique qui avait déjà été acquis au fil des ans par l'ancien IRFOC (Institut de recherche francophone de l’ouest canadien) et ensuite par l’ancien IPFOC (Institut pour le patrimoine de la francophonie de l’ouest canadien).

This fonds was acquired by the University of Alberta Archives in 2019 from the Archives Saint-Jean that was previously housed at the University of Alberta’s Campus Saint-Jean. The Archives Saint-Jean’s main goal was to preserve archival materials that had already been acquired by the IRFOC (Institut de recherche francophone de l’ouest canadien) and subsequently by IPFOC (Institut pour le patrimoine de la francophonie de l’ouest canadien).
