In this study, we investigated French-language principals’ work in Ontario. More specifically, we explored principals’ work, the motivations behind their actions, and how they approach their work. In particular, our research team: (a) examined how French Public and French Catholic school principals approach their work, (b) documented how principals spend their time, (c) explored the motives and external factors that influence their choices, (d) described the challenges and possibilities in their work, and (e) investigated how work-related challenges impact principals’ health and well-being. Throughout this report, we have aimed to present a more comprehensive understanding of French-language principals’ work in contemporary times.
