Montreal, April 20, 2015 – 
The Quebec Community Groups Network (QCGN) is welcoming nominations of individuals who have gone above and beyond in contributing to the vitality and understanding of English-speaking Quebec for recognition with a Sheila and Victor Goldbloom Distinguished Community Service Award. The award, which recognizes individuals who have contributed to strengthening the English-speaking community and to building bridges between Quebecers of different backgrounds, was established by the QCGN in 2009 to celebrate individuals who, like Dr. and Mrs. Goldbloom, have dedicated themselves to ensuring English-speaking Quebec remains a vibrant community within Quebec and Canada.
