On September 30th and October 1st, leaders from Quebec’s community development sector gathered at the QCGN’s Seniors Conference. It was National Seniors Day, and these seniors marked the occasion by coming together to share their wealth of experience in moving the long talked-about idea of a provincial network for English-speaking seniors into concrete reality. As part of a larger process, this step was a significant one – a small group of committed seniors left the conference with the mandate of starting to implement key actions identified and agreed upon at the conference. Their first challenge will be expanding and diversifying the working group to include better representation of Quebec’s different regions and cultures. Ruth Pelletier of the QCGN will be working in partnership with them as they move forward.
