A new partnership between Collège Boréal and Centres d’Accueil Héritage for the Well-Being of Franco-Torontonians

8 March 2022
Collège Boréal and Centre d’Accueil Héritage (CAH) are proud to announce the signing of a partnership agreement that will lead to better healthcare services and improve access to qualified bilingual workers.

Health and aging are important issues

While the COVID-19 pandemic has revealed weaknesses in healthcare systems worldwide, it has also shown the importance of a human approach to health and aging. Here in Ontario, the government has called on the public to respond to the shortage of healthcare professionals, particularly in the gerontology sector. Collège Boréal has answered the call, as it is now offering its Practical Nursing and Personal Support Worker programs on all of its campuses, including Toronto. Up until now, 37 Toronto students have obtained a Collège Boréal diploma in these fields of study since September 2020 and 11 students have the potential to graduate this year.

Partnering for community well-being

Centres d’Accueil Héritage (CAH) offers a wide range of services to Francophone seniors in Greater Toronto. Through this partnership, students in Collège Boréal’s health programs will have opportunities for placements and connections with staff, clients and residents of CAH centres. In particular, this initiative will help efforts to recruit Francophone professionals. Collège Boréal will also be providing additional training and professional development opportunities tailored to the CAH’s needs. This partnership aims to increase the capacity to provide quality French language services for all Francophone and Francophile seniors in the Greater Toronto area.

We all recognize the importance of access to French language healthcare services for our community’s well-being. Our commitment to society and community is at the heart of Collège Boréal’s mission and we are proud to be training the next generation of workers for Centres d’Accueil Héritage and the entire Toronto healthcare network.
We are very pleased to partner with Collège Boréal to train the next generation of francophone caregivers. Our two organizations share a common belief in the importance of contributing to the well-being of seniors by supporting a continuum of health care in French throughout their lives. This is the very basis of the CAH model.
