French Language Health Services Network of Eastern Ontario
The French Language Health Services Network of Eastern Ontario developed the concept of a Healthcare in French networking opportunity for health and social service professionals in South Eastern Ontario. The 2nd edition (2015) attracted more than 40 Francophone and bilingual professionals from the Kingston region and allowed them to foster collaborative ties in order to facilitate information sharing regarding French language services offered in the area.
The professionals and health providers are at the heart of the offer of health services in French. We sense a real desire on their part to respond to the needs of Francophones and they are seeking the means. Occasions like these serve to strengthen their capacity, including sharing of information and contacts.
