Through this project, Townshippers’ Association will continue to collaborate with various institutions and organizations in the health and social services sector of the Montérégie-East region to help them better understand the needs of the English-speaking community. This will be done in a joint effort to recruit and retain English-speaking bilingual health and social service professionals in the region. We will:

  • Help the institutions and organizations in the health and social services sector adapt existing recruitment policies in order to encourage the recruitment of English-speaking professionals. This, in turn, will benefit the institutions and organizations, as well as the English-speaking community;
  • Assist in the recruitment of English-speaking students to the Montérégie-East region and work to ensure a successful completion of their field placement with a local health and social services provider, all the while helping to secure employment for the students following their internships;
  • Assist in the development of lasting collaborations and partnership agreements between the teaching institutions and the Montérégie-East health and social services network to ensure the continuity of the recruitment and retention of English-speaking professionals in the region;
  • Demonstrate the benefits of living in the Montérégie-East region of the Eastern Townships;
  • Ensure the return of Montérégie-East born professionals following the completion of their studies;
  • Ensure that the health and social service needs and priorities of the English-speaking community are understood, and met, throughout the network and by collaborating institutions;
  • Develop an initiative to encourage English high school students to consider careers in the Health and Social Services sector, either in the Montérégie-East region or elsewhere in Quebec.
