Region 14 – Lanaudière
ECOL – English Community Organization of Lanaudière
ECOL aims to:
Youth Implement the Mother Goose program by offering sessions (Fall/Winter) in collaboration with Rawdon Elementary School and CLC Joliette, and possibly the Maison de Parents de la Matawinie Ouest and Joliette Elementary School, in order to increase school readiness in young children.
Seniors Continue to operate weekly Wellness Centre activities to the senior population in Rawdon.
Mental Health Observations in the community of Rawdon have shown us that itinerancy is on the increase, and consultations with community members indicate that mental illness is going undiagnosed and untreated in the ESC. As a result, ECOL will develop its knowledge base to further analyze the situation.
In addition, ECOL will open a Wellness Centre in Mascouche, offering similar activities to those described above in Rawdon. It will also house documentation regarding health and social services, legal and public safety matters. Participants will also have access to CHEP videoconferences, and health professionals invited to present information at these sessions.
