ACCESS TO JUSTICE IN ENGLISH
No Justice Without Access
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.
HEALTH AND SOCIAL SERVICES
Defending the Health and Social Service Institutions Of English-Speaking Quebec
Through its Health and Social Services Committee, the Quebec Community Groups Network works to ensure the interests of our community are protected and that our rights to access health and social services in our own language are respected.
STATISTICAL LITERACY PROJECT
Improving Statistical Literacy in the English-speaking Community
The QCGN is leading a project to improve the level of statistical literacy within the community sector and institutions serving English-speaking Quebec. With help from community and federal partners, the goal is to train 10 to 15 students a summer and have them work approximately 12 weeks for an organization serving the English-speaking community across Quebec.
Community Engagement and the Integration of English-Speaking Newcomers
In March 2017, 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.
