• ActLab presentation on Fake News, Disinformation and Misinformation – What Is It All About?

From fake news to videos of robots pretending to be politicians, there is rising concern over the amount of misleading information online. Join us on March 12, as we break down what all of this false stuff is, where it comes from, what harms it is causing, and - most critically - how we should respond to it. It can feel overwhelming to sift through all the information online, and this workshop should help you better understand the blurry lines between fact and fiction on the Internet.

• Lunch and Learn: Accessing Senior Care in Quebec

The Quebec Community Groups Network and Seniors Action Quebec invite you to save the date for our Lunch and Learn: Accessing Senior Care in Quebec on March 15 from noon to 1 p.m. Our webinar will discuss the Access to Justice program and its QCGN's 2023 report titled Access to Senior Care in English in Quebec.

Ongoing health-care crises have disproportionately affect Official Language Minority Communities (OLMCs) due to their weaker access to necessary health services in the official language of their choice. This report highlights the unique challenges faced by English-speaking seniors in accessing essential health services, including basic doctors' appointments and long-term care. The report's findings will interest community members, researchers, and practitioners alike.

This Lunch and Learn marks the beginning of the QCGN's Access to Justice series which will showcase various research reports. Please register here and feel free to share this information with anyone who may be interested.
