The Quebec Community Groups Network (QCGN) is very happy that the English speaking community in the province was asked for advice as well as its issues in a House of Commons Standing Committee on Official Languages study of Immigration as a Development Tool in Official Language Minority Communities. The network is especially happy with the suggestions which say that CIC is increasing its intergovernmental efforts to evaluate the requirements of the community and cater to the financial support. This is to cater to the development of the immigration network specifically in the regions.
It has been noted in the report by the Committee that CIC must identify the community as a linguistic integration model. More so, it has a particular role in the community when it comes to the integration of the immigrants to the local societies of Quebec as well as Canada. The Committee also recommends that this must be taken into account when it comes to forming new policies, new partnerships as well as programs pertaining to immigration. This should be done so that the English Speaking Community in Quebec would get the support under the Official Languages Act as well as the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.
For those who are not aware, the QCGN is a not-for-profit organization. It brings together about thirty six English language community organizations existing throughout Quebec. The main motto of this network is to recognize, explore as well as cater to strategic concerns which affect the vitality as well as the development of the English speaking in Quebec. More so, it aims to promote collaboration as well dialogue between the member organizations, community groups, leaders and institutions and so on.
