The Networking and Partnership Initiative (NPI) is a program designed to support Quebec’s minority English-speaking communities in improving and maintaining access to the full range of Health and Social Services. The program supports the capacity of Quebec’s English-speaking communities to ensure their vitality through cooperation and partnership with the health and social services system. To achieve this, the program currently funds the development of 25 community health and social service networks (NPIs). Funding for this program is provided by Health Canada and the project is managed by CHSSN.
Adaptation of Health and Social Services
The Adaptation program was designed to enhance the vitality of English-speaking minority communities for health and social services in Quebec through the Roadmap for Canada’s Official Languages 2013-2018: Education, Immigration, Communities. This initiative is being undertaken in partnership with the Ministère de la Santé et des Services Sociaux (MSSS). REISA received project funding from Region 6: Improving access to services in English in Montreal.
Community Network Table
In collaboration with partners across Montreal, Laval, and the South Shore, REISA has helped coordinate regional dialogue and annual forums, bringing together community and public representatives to improve access to English-language health and social services on Montreal Island and surroundings.
