L'École Guigues, the school named in honour of the first Catholic Bishop of Ottawa, is a place of historical significance for the Franco-Ontarian community. In January 1916, during the crisis over Regulation 17, a group of parents, including mothers armed with hatpins, occupied the building to prevent school authorities from taking possession of it. Regulation 17 was a key episode in the history of the language conflicts that had been shaking Canada and Ontario since Confederation in 1867. Approved in 1912, Regulation 17 was intended to make English the sole language of instruction and communication in primary schools, and to restrict the teaching of French. It. outraged Franco-Ontarians, who finally succeeded in having it repealed in 1927. Regulation 17 was officially abolished from Ontario's statutes and regulations in 1944.

L'école Guigues, ainsi nommée en l'honneur du premier évêque catholique d'Ottawa, constitue un lieu de mémoire important pour la collectivité franco-ontarienne.

C'est en janvier 1916 qu'un groupe de parents, dont des mères de famille armées de leur épingle à chapeau, occupent l'édifice pour empêcher les autorités scolaires d'en prendre possession, lors de la crise du Règlement 17, un épisode clé dans l'histoire des grands conflits linguistiques qui secouent le Canada et l'Ontario à partir de la Confédération en 1867. Adopté en 1912, le Règlement 17 vise à faire de l'anglais la seule langue d'enseignement et d'usage à l'école primaire et à limiter l'enseignement du français. Il soulève la colère des Franco-Ontariens. Ceux-ci obtiendront finalement gain de cause en 1927. Le Règlement 17 sera aboli officiellement des statuts et lois de l'Ontario en 1944.
