Marie-Claude Thifault, a historian of psychiatric health in Quebec and other parts of Canada, will focus her research on the impact of psychiatric deinstitutionalization on francophone minority communities, particularly in Eastern Ontario, from the early 20th century to today. This research will help bring us closer to a clearer understanding of the history of reintegration as experienced by francophone communities in Canada.
