QCA President's Message


Dear QCA Members,

My first year as president has almost come to its end. It seems like yesterday...

I would like to thank QCA’s board of directors who dedicate their precious time and energies towards our association so that we can all keep informed, up to date and connected. Thank you, each and everyone, for volunteering and working so hard this year! And thank you members for taking the time to participate in our events, and read our e-bulletin.

It has been a productive year.  The QCA has reached out to other community networks to strengthen our voice and offer our support to English-community services and mental health resources. QCA is now member of the Quebec Community Groups Network  (visit their website: http://www.qcgn.ca) and will soon be linked with the Community Health And Social Services Network (CHSSN) (see their site at http://chssn.org ). Together we are actively working to ensure the needs of those we serve and the communities we work in are met and preserved.

Many initiatives have come to fruition. We have updated our webpage, focused on members in our e-bulletin, offered carpooling to the CCPA conference, and Peer Supervision... some of our efforts were more successful than others, but we didn’t and won’t stop trying. Visit our website and Facebook page: (http://www.quebeccounselling.ca or https://www.facebook.com/quebeccounselling).

I am hoping to take on the role of President for 2015-16 and I encourage you to work with me towards another year of growth and involvement. I welcome your participation and comments in order to better meet your needs. Please come to our Annual General Meeting Wednesday June 17th at 6:30pm; an announcement will be coming your way soon. Let us know your needs and how we can better meet them. You can also reach me anytime at  qca.counselling@gmail.com .
