Title
What Future For English-Language Health and Social Services in Quebec?
Abstract
The author examines six dimensions for considering the future for English-language health and social services in Quebec. A historical overview of legislative guarantees of services in English presents two opposing political perspectives on their application, as well as community mobilization efforts required to protect the legislation. Recent information (pre-2008) on demographic vitality and health status of English-speaking communities sets an important context for understanding the regional realities of access to health and social services in English. The new context of Quebec's health and social services system is described with respect to its impact on access programs of services in English. The author presents the results of the 2003 federal Action Plan for English-speaking communities, as well as the community blueprint for action aiming to secure the future of English-language health and social services in Quebec.
