The global social context since the end of Second World War has been characterized by a significant and rapid intensification of worldwide communication. As of the late 1980s, the Cold War global order that structured the socialist/communist against the capitalist/free world blocks with a Third World in between, has effectively collapsed. The reports manifest a shared global dimension, however, to a greater extent than they address comparable situations of new cultural and religious diversity as a consequence of post-war global migration. The Commission and its report must be situated in the context of a broader debate in Quebec at the time, on question of integration of immigrants and what are called ethno-cultural communities. In the wake of defeat of the second sovereignty referendum of 1995 at beginning of Parti Québécois's (PQ's) period in power, the mission of ministry came to be that of bridging the gap between Quebec society, in particular its francophone majority and its minorities or cultural communities.
