Submitted to the Select Committee on Dying with Dignity
In 1980, a group of individuals who represented various sectors of the English-speaking Catholic community and its organizations met with the idea of consolidating our human and material resources for the development of our community. This led to the formation in 1981 of the English Speaking Catholic Council (ESCC) with a mandate to act as a focal point in coordinating the English-speaking Catholic community of Greater Montreal. Over the years, the ESCC has assumed a higher profile which now extends throughout the Province and beyond.
Inspired by the contemporary Catholic understanding of the role of the laity in the modern world, the English Speaking Catholic Council assists in the promotion of its community’s values and advocates those values in the resolution of issues affecting this community. The Board of Directors is made up of women and men from both the private and public sectors, all volunteers, who come together with a commitment to support their community in education, health and social services, community animation, culture and social justice.
