Event description


Seniors Action Quebec is pleased to present in association with CMHC and the City of Cote Saint Luc:

The major part in the afternoon we’ll be asking you what types of programs could be offered in your communities that would make a difference. From today’s deliberations and discussions, recommendations will be submitted to Minister Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development, so they will be included in the Government’s report in Reducing Poverty Strategy deliberations.
