Community Engagement and the Integration of English-speaking Newcomers
In March, the QCGN held its first major conference on how newcomers integrate into Quebec society through our English-speaking communities and institutions. The discussion was a precursor to the work we are undertaking with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to reflect on the important role newcomers play in defining our communities and our society as well as the wide-ranging policy challenges and opportunities that arise from integration and ethnocultural diversity.
Protecting the Minority Language Education Rights of Our Community
The Quebec Community Groups Network has long held that English schools are one of the cornerstones of our communities. Because a strong English school system is crucial to the vitality and survival of our communities the QCGN has advocated strongly to ensure our minority language community education rights are protected, most recently in the debate over Bill 86.
Defending the Health and Social Service Institutions of English-speaking Quebec
The Quebec Community Groups Network is working to ensure that the interests of our community are protected as the government continues to implement Bill 10, the law restructuring control and management of health and social services institutions in Quebec. Along with its Health and Social Service committee, the QCGN is ensuring guarantees to our community are fully respected.
Building Research Capacity Related to Quebec’s English-speaking Seniors
This community based, participatory action research project was led by QCGN in collaboration with the Quebec English-Speaking Communities Research Network (QUESCREN) which is housed in the School of Extended Learning at Concordia University in Montreal. This project was funded by the Government of Quebec through the Soutien aux initiatives visant le respect des aînés (SIRA) program.
