QCGN meets to consolidate partnerships

MONTREAL, June 16, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - The Quebec Community Groups Network (QCGN) kicks off its 17th annual meeting Thursday June 16 with three full days of discussions and workshops at Concordia University.

The Members' Convention begins today with a joint initiative of QCGN and the Federal department of Canadian Heritage that aims to foster interdepartmental communication and identify avenues of collaboration with the English-speaking community.

Friday, the more public part of our meeting, will begin with a panel discussion entitled "A Community of Communities," which aims to discuss the interconnectivity of communities within English-speaking Quebec. Moderated by Graham Fraser, the Commissioner of Official Languages, panellists will include Senator Joan Fraser, Townshippers' Association President Gerald Cutting and Montreal Gazette reporter, Marian Scott. Because of their unique roles as actors and observers of our community, each is bound to have an interesting perspective on the topic.
