Understanding the McGill Retention Project
English-speaking minorities experience a limitation in their access to English health and social services due to prevalent language barriers within the province of Quebec. Given this reality, REISA’s role in the McGill Retention Project Initiative is to promote and support the retention of health and social service professionals in the East end of Montreal to ensure that East Island English-speaking minority communities have access to services in their own language.
We seek to create and support partnerships with English-speaking community networks and educational institutions to promote internship opportunities in the East end for students at various levels of study who are pursuing careers in health and social services.

What We’ve Accomplished
McGill Golden Share Conference: A Meeting of Retention Program Partners
On November 18, 2015, REISA attended the annual Golden Share Conference, which brought together Retention Program partners from the community organizations and educational institutions to share experiences, best-practices and successes of this program with one another.
REISA was cordially invited to participate in a roundtable discussion at this event and had the opportunity to discuss what elements of our success in placing students from the McGill School of Social Work and the McGill School of Dietetics and Human Nutrition in East end community organizations can be replicated.
Note: This event was organized by the McGill Training and Retention of Health Professionals Project and was funded by Health Canada.
