Language Training Program : Frame of Reference 2010-2013
The McGill Training and Retention of Health Professionals Project seeks to contribute to Government of Quebec initiatives aimed at ensuring that English-speaking Quebecers have access to the full range of health and social services in their language. To this end it proposes a series of measures to train, hire and retain an adequate workforce for delivering health services and social services in English. The Project objectives are to a) improve the capacity of the health and social services network to serve English speakers in their language and b) increase the participation of English-speaking professionals in Quebec’s health and social services system. The achievement of these goals depends on a solid partnership between McGill University and the ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux (MSSS). A MSSS-McGill joint committee has been formed to oversee the implementation and monitoring of the various Project measures.
