Spring 2021 has been an odd season, in an odd year, for many of us.

Where normally we would be looking forward to the beginning of Montreal summer, and in this second pandemic year, the gradual loosening of restrictions – we were also following the deeply disturbing revelations from the coroner’s inquiry into the death of Joyce Echaquan.

While the inquiry was proceeding, on May 27th we learned about the discovery of the graves of 215 First Nations children on the grounds of a former residential school in Kamloops, British Columbia.

Story Contest: Moving Forward Together

Deadline for submissions: October 15, 2021

This year's Story Contest encourages Family Medicine Department members to share their stories, thoughts and experiences on the theme "Moving Forward Together." Story telling is a powerful tool in healing. People yearn for stories, particularly stories of influence, hope, and community building. We can learn from and through authentic experiences, both of grief and joy. COVID-19 has shown us the interconnectivity of communities worldwide.
