Dear Members and Constituents,
The past few months has been a tumultuous time for all, including the Regional Association of West Quebecers. The majority of our activities requiring some degree of personal interaction, the Association decided to suspend operations and lay off all staff on April 1st.
We are relieved and proud to announce the recommencement of operations effective July 27th. Rest assured, significant health and safety precautions will be undertaken to ensure control of the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus in congruence with public health and safety measures. Among others, the Association offices will be reconfigured to maximize social distancing and our celebrated French Second Language courses will be run online.
Please stay tuned for more announcements. We look forward to serving you once again in the very near future.
President, on behalf of the Board of Directors of the Regional Association of West Quebecers
Our team at the RAWQ would like to share as many relevant resources as possible with the community. If you have any ideas of activities that families can do from home, home remedies that you might like to share, information about businesses that are still operating, etc. we would love to add to what we currently have to offer. Please share any updates with Hayley at email@example.com
The Quiz Night event that was to take place on Friday, March 20th has been postponed. If you purchased tickets in advance, we will honour them at a later date.
The business coach will be reaching out to her clients to let them know the next appointment will be done online/over the phone.
Thank you for understanding!
Cheer on the Heritage Hurricanes Men's Basketball team from March 20-22 at the Regional Championship!

Our friends at Y4Y Quebec need your help!
The Y4Y Quebec Symbolism Project was inspired by the flags of the Canadian Francophonie to create the first official flag to represent the English-speaking community of Quebec! We are looking for you to get involved in the project by telling us the symbols that represent you and the English-speaking community of Quebec. Have your say today!
RAWQ hosts a conversation club, in partnership with Residence L’Initial, on Monday nights in Aylmer.
The club focuses on improving listening comprehension and oral communication in French. We invite guest speakers from around the region to speak about topics of interest or conduct a group conversation. We have hosted such figures as Rick Henderson, Micheline Lemeiux, MNA Andre Fortin, Gatineau Councilwoman Audrey Bureau and others. This club has a $65 fee and will run from January 20th to around May 25th. If you are interested in participating or require more information, please contact Jeanne Nivischiuk at fsl@westquebecers or by calling 819-682-9602.
Dear Students of the RAWQ FSL Courses,
It is with great regret that I inform you that the Regional Association of West Quebecers is postponing the next session of our French second-language courses, which was to take place this winter. Due to unforeseen budgetary constraints, we are unable to hold the session.
We will resume the courses as soon as possible; however we do not anticipate that that will be before the autumn of 2020. Student information will be kept, including the information of those who had registered for the cancelled session. We will ensure that they have priority when the courses resume. Should there be any further change in the status of the Program, the Association will notify you all.
Thank you for your participation thus far, and for your patience and understanding going forward. We look forward to seeing you in the fall of 2020.
