Come Share in the Learning Together

Who will be with us in Montreal this June?

The Community Health and Social Services Network (CHSSN) is one terrific example of a group that is bringing together their network of partners and neighbourhood leaders to learn together in Montreal this June. The maps below show the breadth of the network of English-speaking and French-speaking communities.

The CHSSN (also known as the Réseaux communautaire de santé et de services sociaux) is a provincial network of over 65 organizations and institutions and supports the development of twenty inter-sectoral community health and social services networks. These networks aim to mobilize citizens, organizations and institutions to affect positive change in their English-speaking communities. Curious to see how the CHSSN aims to mobilize communities for improving Health and Vitality? You can view a great visual model of their approach here.

Some of these network leaders, including valued Tamarack Institute contributor Russ Kueber (who also co-authored this blog on A New Model for Mobilizing Minority Communities) will be in attendance. CHSSN are a proud sponsor of Neighbourhoods, The Heart of Community, Mobilizing for Impact, and Russ and the CHSSN group is looking forward to expanding their knowledge and sharing their experiences with other conference participants.

Come learn with us!
