Title
Building Together : Succesful Partnerships Between Community and the Health and Social Services System
Abstract
The Community Health and Social Services Network (CHSSN) coordinates a Quebec-wide health and social services “Adaptation Program” designed to enhance the vitality of English-speaking minority communities in Quebec by increasing access to existing health and social services for Englishspeaking Quebecers. The program is supported by an investment from Health Canada and has been undertaken in partnership with the ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux (MSSS). An implementation agreement between CHSSN and the MSSS was concluded to incorporate the projects into Quebec’s initiatives to improve access to health and social services in English through partnerships between local English-speaking communities and health and social services system.
