Last Friday, the QCGN and its Seniors Committee have taken first steps towards the creation of a Provincial Network for English-speaking Seniors. Keynote speakers were Ms. Sheila Goldbloom (Conseil des aînés and co-chair of the 2008 Provincial commission for the living conditions of Seniors), who reminded the participants the importance of a Network to support our work, and Mr. Roger Doiron, President of the Fédération des aînées et aînés francophones du Canada, who came from New-Brunswick to share with us best practices in the establishment of such a network in linguistic minority communities.
