Jeune-Canada (French for "Young Canada") was a French Canadian right-wing nationalist movement founded in Quebec and active during the 1930s. Launched in 1932 in reaction to the public nominations of unilingual anglophones, the movement reached its apogee the following year, in 1933.
As a movement, Jeune-Canada was corporatist and ultramontanist; the group advocated for francophone rights in Canada and political and economic autonomy for Quebec. The movement gathered together many of the future elites who would later contribute to the Quiet Revolution, even though the ideals of the Quiet Revolution were quite different from those of Jeune-Canada.
The movement was never officially dissolved; some members still declared themselves as members of Jeune-Canada in 1939. The files of the organization are maintained by the Lionel Groulx Foundation.
