It’s a new program that the province is hoping will help the English community.
The Minister Responsible for Relations with English Speaking Quebecers, Kathleen Weil, announced nearly $7 million will be going to organizations that offer services to English-speaking Quebecers.
Quebec Community Groups Network (QCGN) says though the grant program is something they’ve been pushing for, more is still needed.
“We take a positive view of the potential,” said QCGN President Geoffrey Chambers. “All those groups are good groups, but they exist among 250 other groups who weren’t there, so we have more to do.”
