In order to tackle actions that need to be taken for English-speaking seniors of Quebec, the QCGN has developed a pilot project within the Soutien aux initiatives visant le respect des aînés program (SIRA) focusing on Montreal, Townships, Outaouais until March 2011 and the rest of Quebec starting April 2011 based on “Blazing a Trail for Active and Healthy Aging – An Action Plan for Quebec’s English-speaking Seniors (2010-2015)”. This document can be downloaded on the QCGN website: /library/
From this action plan, the QCGN is now in the process of collecting data that will lead to targeted initiatives. We invite you/your organization to fill out the following surveys. For any further questions about this project, please contact Valerie Glover-Drolet.
1. FOR ORGANIZATIONS AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTORS
Based on the “Blazing a Trail for Active and Healthy Aging – An Action Plan for Quebec’s English-speaking Seniors” (2010-2015), 9 issues have been identified as potential priorities for Seniors. The following survey will help us determine which ones of the 9 issues should be targeted for the creation of strategies.
We request that all organizations respond to this to allow us to develop overarching strategy (inclusive). This will give us a global overview of your region and clientele.
FOR INDIVIDUALS IN YOUR COMMUNITY
We request that INDIVIDUALS respond to this to allow us to develop overarching strategy (inclusive).
Thank you for those of you who replied to the QCGN Survey about Seniors!
If you did not reply yet, you have until January 31st to submit.
