“Supporting the English-speaking community in West Quebec”


The Regional Association of West Quebecers is always ready to consider innovative projects that enhance the English-speaking community in the Outaouais. While some of the concerns in West Quebec are felt acutely by the English-speaking population, other issues may touch everyone in the community. In the latter case, it seems appropriate to work together to find solutions.

RAWQ addresses social concerns to the English-speaking community by initiating projects that improve the quality of life, particularly in the area of health and social services, Youth, Education, Culture, etc.
