Title
Social Initiatives for Vulnerable English-speaking Youth Seniors Newcomers / Initiatives sociales pour jeunes aînés nouveaux arrivants
Abstract
The Community Innovation Fund (CIF) has helped Quebec’s English-speaking communities transform social innovation into action through the development of skills. The Fund financed 10 innovative projects that targeted particular needs and priorities of vulnerable English-speaking youth, seniors and newcomers. Each project, in its own way, served to improve job skills or help maintain basic socio-economic security of English-speaking Quebecers. In the following pages, you will learn more about these projects – what they set out to do, what they’ve accomplished and how they served to enhance the vitality of English-speaking Quebec.
