More equitable and efficient access to English language health and social services in the Monteregie.
The Assistance and Referral Centre for Health & Social Services (ARC) promotes efficient access to health and social services in English in the Montérégie. Working in partnership with public and community actors in the Centre intégré de santé et de services sociaux (CISSS) de la Montérégie including: Montérégie-East, Montérégie-Center, and Montérégie-West territories, we:
- contribute, connect, and share resources and information that promotes access to health and social services in English
- collaborate with service providers, community organizers, and individuals in the Montérégie on community-wide initiatives
- develop community awareness of the need for services in English
- support recruiting and retention efforts so that there are more English-speaking professionals working in our health and social services system
