Description of planned Activities
This project addresses a specific need for English-speaking professionals in social work and mental health services. In the first year (2005-06), the project set up a steering group to develop the potential field placements and to develop communication and recruitment material. A network of potential supervisors was identified. Preparation work and recruitment continued in 2006-07. Six interns were placed in 2007-08. As the result of these field placements, a number of the students were offered employment in the region including two of the Speech Pathology students, and a Masters of Social Work Student. Some of these former students are native-born Townshippers and the McGill project is enabling them to stay in the area.
