Quebec Community Groups Network Brief to the Senate Standing Committee on Official Language’s Study of Matters Relating to Minority-language Health Services

The Committee has been authorized to examine and report on minority-language health services, including matters related to the inclusion of language clauses in federal health transfer.

Our brief augments the brief submitted by Community Health and Social Services Network (CHSSN) on May 1st, 2023, and will focus on the inclusion of language clauses in federal health transfers.

In our opinion, the CHSSN brief does an outstanding job describing the demographics of English-speaking Quebec, and the reality we face accessing health and social services. We also draw to your attention the Committee’s 2011 report, The Vitality of Quebec’s English-speaking Communities: From Myth to Reality, which remains an important and relevant piece of policy research related to your current study.
