Three contexts emerge: Anglo-dominance; the ambivalent relationship with Quebec; and non-traditional Francophone space, stemming from immersion and immigration programs. An analysis of data on these contexts, and by referring to the concepts of linguistic hierarchy and psychosocial fragility, reveals ambiguous feelings of fragility. Alongside fragility, other feelings arise, like resistance that emerges as the ability to overcome adversity by drawing on the history of the family or ethnic group. These sources of support reveal inadequate institutional psychosocial support. Thus, is the presence of linguistic variations, or language levels, among Franco-Albertan youth illustrative of a major issue, that of identifying new sociocultural and sociolinguistic areas of mental health?
