• Publication of a new edition of the Guide des programmes destinés aux personnes handicapées, à leur famille et à leurs proches
Dec 13, 2017

The Guide des programmes destinés aux personnes handicapées, à leur famille et à leurs proches, developed by the Office des personnes handicapées du Québec (OPHQ) and adapted by the FNQLHSSC with the financial support of the OPHQ and Secrétariat aux affaires autochtones, is now available.

 

The purpose of this guide is to facilitate access to information on the various programs offered to people with disabilities, their families and loved ones, such as income support, home support, housing, employment, technical aids, childcare services, education, transportation, recreational activities, sports, culture and community life programs. It also outlines the main Quebec compensation programs that may be of benefit to people with disabilities. This new edition also includes, for the first time and for each program, information on Quebec non-treaty communities.

 

Hard copies and the electronic version of the guide will soon be made available to Quebec First Nations communities and organizations by the OPHQ. In the meantime, you can access the French version on the OPHQ website (the English version will soon be available).
