Spreading the Word

The Blue Metropolis Foundation brings together people from different cultures to share the pleasure of reading and writing and encourages creativity and intercultural understanding. Throughout the year, the Foundation offers a wide range of educational and social programs.

Spreading the Word is an exciting new resource from the not-for-profit Foundation to help retirees discover English-language writers in Quebec and start creating traditional and virtual book clubs. The user-friendly tool will also help you to learn the art of reading out loud.

Presented by Canadian Heritage, Quebec Writers’ Federation, Seniors Action Quebec, Amazon.ca, and TD Bank Canada Trust, a free information session is being held on Saturday, April 29, at 6:30 pm, at the Centre Lac-Brome, 270 rue Victoria, Knowlton.

Éducaloi: Know Your Rights – updated

Éducaloi is a non-profit organization whose mission is to inform Quebecers of their rights and obligations by providing quality legal information in everyday language. On Friday, April 21 the free Health Matters information session will welcome Éducaloi’s Sarah Doherty with updated information to help you understand your rights.

Hosted by the Avante Women’s Center and Townshippers’ Association, this interactive presentation will take place from 10:00am to 12:00pm at the CLSC Cowansville 397 de la Rivière. Participants will have ample time to get answers to their questions.

Health Matters is a part of CHEP (Community Health Education Program) offered by the Community Health and Social Services Network (CHSSN), which aims to provide health information to English-speaking communities across Quebec. Visit CHEP online at www.chssn.org. This CHSSN initiative is funded by Health Canada through the Roadmap for Canada’s Official Languages 2013-2018: Education, Immigration, Communities.
