• Bring a collective focus on outreach, health promotion, illness and injury prevention, as well as chronic disease prevention and management strategies for this under-served population.
• Promote French Language Service best practices in addressing service improvement areas across health and social service sectors.
• Enhance French Language Service capacity of health and social service providers to provide linguistically and culturally appropriate services.

Our Welcoming Community
The Mississauga Halton FLS CoP is one of the 5 subregions in Southwestern Ontario launching a Welcoming Community strategy for bilingual professionals in health and social services. The goal of this initiative includes:
• supporting the identification of students enrolled in postsecondary programs who hold a French or bilingual high school diploma
• developing and promoting Welcoming Community activities for bilingual students to promote recruitment, integration, and retention of bilingual professionals in the region
• establishing opportunities to connect bilingual professionals with FLS CoP health and social service provider organizations.
We are looking to connect with French-speaking health or social services students, or internationally educated professionals.
If you are interested in visiting inspiring workplaces in the Mississauga Halton region, networking, exploring mentorship opportunities, or finding volunteer clinical or internship placements, contact our friendly community today at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We want YOU to be a part of our Welcoming Community.
Come make a difference in people’s lives en français!
The Welcoming Community initiative for bilingual professionals in health and social services is sponsored by the French Health Network of Central Southwestern Ontario and funded by Health Canada under the Action Plan for Official Languages – 2018-2023: Investing in Our Future.
