Connexions Resource Centre

Connexions aims to:

Children 0-4

  • Adapt a ‘School readiness kit’ for ESC families, and continue to offer and expand the ‘Gatineau Itsy Bitsy Tots’ program.

Parents and Families / Health and Wellness Forums

  • Host forums for 1- Adult Education students and staff, 2- parents and school staff from the Western Quebec School Board, and 3- for parents with children of special needs, to enhance a directory of resources, and explore the feasibility to establish a support group.

Seniors

  • Promote and distribute the ‘Health Passport’ and update the network’s Seniors’ Directory
  • Deliver CHEP sessions and the “Jog Your Memory” programs.

In addition, Connexions focuses on collaborating with the Table des aînés et retraités du Pontiac (TARP), to develop an action plan using data from focus groups, CHSSN Baseline Data Reports (BDR), evaluations from previous network activities and information on existing services and gaps to produce a series of health promotion activities offered to English-speaking seniors, and to determine the feasibility of regular health promotion activities in this urban area.
