QCGN Responds to Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

As COVID-19 continues to spread, our thoughts go out to anyone who has been infected or impacted. The Quebec Community Groups Network hopes that you, your family and friends are safe, and that you are taking the necessary precautions to ensure you and your loved ones remain healthy.

The QCGN is adapting to this ever-changing environment while ensuring continuity and remaining fully functional. Evidently the QCGN and our Network members have postponed all public events including our Community Collaboration Forum that was scheduled for March 30-31 and our Access to Justice workshop. Despite obvious challenges, the services that QCGN provides to our Network and community will not be compromised. You will continue to receive your Daily Briefings, which are being prepared remotely, and your Weekly Updates.

For now, the QCGN office remains open, although all employees have been given the option of working remotely. Those who are coming to work are adopting safe social distancing practices. We will review our practices in the coming days and weeks as we gain a better understanding of the impact of COVID-19 on our communities. You can reach our directors and projects managers via their emails. Let’s stay safe together.
