Dear Parents and Family members,

Over the last four months, there has been a lot of information in the media about Bill 10 which is the new law on health and social services.

This law will completely reorganize these services and is due to go into effect on April 1st. WMRC will cease to exist as an independent organization but will instead be part of a large “centre intégré”, the CIUSSS de l’Ouest-de-l’Île-de-Montréal, which will include hospitals, CLSCs’ nursing homes and readaptation centres.

Minister Geoffrey Kelley

Dr Katherine Moxness

It is important that you know how these changes will affect the services your family member will receive. The WMRC Parents’ Committee, with the support of the Users’ Committee, will hold an information evening with guest speakers Dr. Katherine Moxness – WMRC’s Executive Director, Mr. Geoff Kelley – MNA for Jacques-Cartier. We are fortunate to have them available to help us understand the impact of the changes on both children and adults.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Carole Mercier
On behalf of the Executive Committee
