For Immediate Release   You can find our news release in PDF here.   News Release Entities and Networks Support Commissioner Boileau’s Recommendations     Toronto, June 8, 2016   Ontario’s French Language Health Planning Entities and Health Networks would like to thank and congratulate Ontario’s Commissioner of French Language Services for his annual report, as well as for ihis special report dated May 27 titled ” Active Offer of Services in French: The Cornerstone for Achieving the Objectives of Ontario’s French Language Services Act”.     Ontario’s French Language Health Planning Entities and Health Networks endorse unreservedly the conclusions contained in these two reports. We are particularly enthusiastic with the idea of making Ontario as a whole a designated area. Many Francophones live in non- designated areas, and the lack of services in these regions jeopardizes the safety of Francophone patients. This proposal is in line with the objectives of Bill 210, tabled by the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care on June 2, 2016, “An Act to amend various Acts in the interest of patient-centred care.”     The Commissioner’s special report on active offer builds on targeted efforts by the Networks and Entities to promote the concept of active offer among health services providers. We have supported the latter in engaging in active offer by providing tool kits and workshops that offer simple solutions.     In March 2015, the Entities and Health Networks adopted a common position on active offer of health services in French. We are pleased that the Commissioner noted our expertise in the report’s summary. Active offer of health services in French is the regular and permanent offer of services to the Francophone population. Active offer of services:   respects the principle of equity; aims for a quality of service comparable to that provided in English; is linguistically and culturally appropriate to the needs and priorities of Francophones; and is inherent in the quality of the services provided to people (patients, residents, clients) and an important contributing factor to their     Ontario’s French Language Health Planning Entities and Health Networks  remain ready and willing to work with the Commissioner, the government or any other partner to ensure implementation of active offer where it is needed.   -30-   Ontario’s French Language Health Networks and French Language Health Planning Entities work to improve the health of Ontario’s Francophone communities. Although their spheres of action, accountabilities and funding are different, the Networks and the Entities work together on provincial issues of common interest.                       Contact : Raphaël Lopoukhine Reflet Salvéo Téléphone : 647 345 5502 – ext : 224 rlopoukhine@refletsalveo.ca  ...

Un public nombreux à la conférence sur la santé mentale de Reflet Salvéo

Et pour cause, le grand public connaît encore mal ces problématiques et est parfois amené à les considérer comme de fausses difficultés. Pour les personnes atteintes de ce mal, il est encore plus difficile d’y faire face lorsque l’entourage ignore tout du danger que cela implique ou se sent désarmé devant lui. » Lire l’article...
