Teenage life in Canada usually includes a variety of activities, many of which are seen as preparatory to future careers and adulthood. Overall, about 60% of minority-language students worked for pay during the 2008/2009 academic year, a figure that was comparable to the figure for majority-language students. Similarly, the share of students active in volunteering was comparable for students in the two school systems, both at 59%. As well, life in Canada provides teens with the opportunity to engage in a number of other types of activities (both at school and outside of school) including sports, music lessons, the arts and the like. About eight in ten minority-language students engaged in these types of activities in 2009, similar to the rate for majority-language students.

Over 95% of 15-year-olds reported having a home life that was conducive to learning and that supported typical teenage life in Canada. There were no significant differences between the minority-and majority-language student populations in any of the provinces on these lifestyle indicators. Students at this age in Canada typically report having a quiet place to do their schoolwork and the computer and educational software needed to complete their homework. They are living in environments that support literacy and reading (typically having more than 100 books in the home) and have at least one of the modern-day electronic devices such as DVD's, cell phones and the like at their disposal in their home.

At the provincial level, however, substantial differences existed. In Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Ontario, students in minority-language schools were much more positive about their schooling than their majority-language counterparts (Chart 2). In Quebec, the reverse was the case, with students in majority-language schools scoring much higher on this index than did students in minority-language schools.

Minority Rights: MINORITY LANGUAGES

Of particular note is the information on language spoken most often at home by 15-year-old students in minority-language schools. A comparison of language spoken in the home and the language used for instruction at school (which was the test language) was possible with the 2009 data. For Canada, only one in ten students in the majority-language school system was using a language most often at home that was different from the language of instruction at school (Table 2). This rose to one-third for students in minority-language school systems, overall.
