QCGN Action Plan promotes healthy aging for our English-speaking seniors

MONTREAL, Aug. 17 /CNW Telbec/ - The Quebec Community Groups Network today launched an Action Plan for English-speaking seniors which sets a path for building healthier communities and a brighter future for our seniors.

Blazing a Trail for Active and Healthy Aging -- An Action Plan for Quebec's English-speaking Seniors was developed as part of the QCGN's mandate to promote the vitality of English-speaking communities across Quebec. It also stems from the QCGN's Strategic Plan, which aims to increase awareness of existing resources available to English-speaking Quebec and to promote inter-community and inter-institutional collaboration.

The report we are launching today is the fruition of a partnership between the QCGN, community leader and seniors from throughout the province.  The Action Plan also profited from some advice from a number of partners including Mrs. Sheila Goldbloom, a member of Le Conseil des aînés and former co-chair of the provincial consultation into the living conditions of seniors; John Walker, a board director of both the QCGN and the Community Health and Social Services Network; Martin Murphy, past QCGN president and Executive Director of the English-speaking Catholic Council; and Mary Stark, Executive Director of Contactivity Centre in Montreal.
