A current theme: a true Quebec family

In 2022, the Réseau pour un Québec famille invites the public to get involved for families. Over the past two years, they have been tested by a pandemic which has brought to light all the precariousness of the institutions supposed to ensure their well-being and the development of children. Now that the situation allows us to glimpse the future with hope, it is an opportunity to review practices in order to promote change and therefore put families and each of their members at the heart of our priorities. Remember that the Réseau pour un Québec Famille is a non-profit organization bringing together national organizations concerned about the situation of Quebec families and from various sectors: community, municipal, education, health and social services, trade unions.

The complete program of activities is available on the Ville de Gaspé website at: https://ville.gaspe.qc.ca/semaine-quebecoise-familles.
