The Quebec Anglophone Heritage Network (QAHN) is a non-profit, non-partisan, province-wide organization engaged with its members in the preservation and promotion of the history, heritage and culture of Quebec -- and, in particular, of Quebec’s English-speaking communities. QAHN strives to advance the knowledge of the history, heritage and culture of those communities by informing, inspiring and connecting people through its activities and services.
Membership in QAHN is open to individuals, families and organizations, regardless of linguistic or cultural affiliation. Currently over 100 museums, historical societies and other heritage, cultural or community organizations across the province hold institutional membership in QAHN.
Many Quebecers have links to Anglophone heritage even though they see themselves as having some other linguistic or cultural attachment. There are also many communities in Quebec that communicate in English but whose members do not come from what are traditionally thought of as English-speaking countries. QAHN does not focus exclusively on the heritage of the British Isles, but on all groups that expresses themselves in English.
Similarly, there are many instances where Anglophone heritage is being preserved by members of Quebec’s French-speaking community. QAHN, therefore, speaks of Anglophone heritage as a field of interest. QAHN is non-political and totally inclusive. QAHN's concern is with the preservation of the English-speaking community’s heritage, not with language.
QAHN is a member of the following organizations:
Fédération Histoire Québec
National Trust for Canada
Quebec Community Groups Network
