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
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.
