Introducing the QCGN's New Board of Directors

Under the theme Working Together for Quebec's English-speaking Communities more than 100 members and stakeholders gathered in Montreal for 21st annual meeting of the Quebec Community Groups Network on June 3, 2016. The QCGN was pleased to welcome Canadian Heritage Minister Mélanie Joly who addressed participants before lunch encouraging them to participate in consultation on the federal government’s new action plan for official languages. The meeting was kicked off by a panel discussion entitled Governments Working for Quebec’s English-speaking Communities that included Canada’s Commissioner of Official Languages, Graham Fraser, and his counterparts from Ontario and New Brunswick François Boileau and Katherine d’Entremont. Also on the agenda were workshops aimed at developing the organizational skills of our member groups. These included a talk on board and staff governance by Dora Koop; a session on shared administrative platforms by Jillian Witt and a workshop on how to engage youth in the context of a minority environment with Joël LeFort and Michel Menezes from the Fédération de la jeunesse canadienne française (FJCF).
