Chair of the Comittee
The Health and Social Service Committee is an advisory committee of the Board of Directors. The committee’s mandate is to inform the English-speaking community and its organizations of the changes made to the Health and Social Service network. The committee also works with organizations that represent the English-speaking community to assure that representatives of the community occupy the seats available on the boards of integrated health boards, aka CISSSs and CIUSSSs, installation advisory committees, Regional Access Committees, Users’ committees, foundation boards and owning corporation members. It also acts on behalf of the QCGN Board to represent the interests of the English-speaking community of Quebec to the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux and other stakeholders.
The QCGN coopted members of its Bill 10 Reference Group to form a Standing Committee on Health and Social Services. The Committee’s mandate is to inform the community of changes to the health and social services network; to ensure the continuing engagement of community members in our institutions; and to represent the interest of the community to the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux, the newly created Centres Intégrés and other important stakeholders. It was clear from the outset that the work of this Committee is vital and that it will require significant support and resources. As issues arise the need for resources to support volunteers is increasingly urgent.
