The LCEEQ Newsletter - Issue 049 - The Spring is Coming Edition

LCEEQ Annual Seminar

Annual Seminar

Included in the LCEEQ Internal Rules of Procedure is a special meeting to be held in April of each year. The focus of the Annual Seminar is to reflect on developments and actions taken since the previous April meeting, to modify the Strategic Plan, as necessary, and to continue to evaluate short- and long-term goals to address the needs of the English Educational Community while establishing priorities for the following year. An outcome of the two-day meeting is to provide direction to the Steering Committee for the year to come.

The Session this year will be held on April 11-12, 2019 and will be animated by Avril Aitken of Bishop’s University. Avril is familiar with LCEEQ as she served at the Bishop’s representative on the Committee. William Floch, Secrétaire adjoint of the Secretariat for Relations With English-speaking Quebecers, will present some current research and trends which will help stimulate deliberations and an action plan.

Nurturing New Relationships


A key component of the LCEEQ Strategic Plan is to collaborate in a proactive manner with partners providing services to the English-speaking Educational Community. To this end, at the most recent LCEEQ meeting held on March 28, 2019, Russ Kueber and Anne-Marie Cech were invited to present: Understanding the Community Health and Social Services Network (CHSSN). It was clearly evident that there are a number of areas in which the services of our two organizations intersect as many educational and health and social services are closely interwoven. This initial meeting provided an excellent opportunity for a rich exchange of ideas and consideration for potential projects on which we can collaborate in the future.

Project Funding - Annual PDIG Campaign


Funding through the Professional Development and Innovation Grants (PDIG) project has been available to the English-speaking Educational Community for many years. In the last three years LCEEQ has assumed the responsibility of managing the project. The latest round of applications for 2019-2020 closed on March 22, 2019.

The Evaluating Teams are presently processing eighty-four applications totalling over six hundred twenty thousand dollars. The expectation is that applicants will be informed of the final decision by April 26, 2019. To date, the selection process is on course.

In the meantime, approved projects for 2018-2019 are drawing to a close and Project Managers are submitting their final reports. The Spring is always a hectic time as the applications for one academic year cross over reports from the previous one.
