There are linguistic barriers for English-speaking Quebecers to access programs and services to ensure their rights are respected. The more vulnerable the population, the greater the barriers can be.
Funded by Justice Canada, QCGN’s Access to Justice in English in Quebec project aims to develop deep knowledge of how Quebec’s justice system works in targeted areas, to collaborate with multiple experts, community, and justice system stakeholders; and to develop plans of action that will make a difference for English-speaking citizens of Quebec.
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.
Celebrating English-speaking youth in Quebec
The Quebec Community Groups Network is committed to the young leaders of our community. With programs ranging from our three-year Young Quebecers Leading the Way sesquicentennial project and the youth leadership award it spawned, to QCGN’s ad-hoc intersectoral group of member organizations advocating for policies, programs and funding, we are encouraging the civic engagement of our young leaders and their attachment to our community and institutions.
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.
