VEQ newcomers co-ordinator Jessica Price and executive director Brigitte Wellens offered handmade scarves made by VEQ’s Close-Knit project to help keep newcomers warm this winter. The evening presentation included information about Quebec’s health care system and tips on how to dress appropriately for this province’s frigid winters.

Over 30 newcomers to Quebec City gathered in the Coin Soleil of Jeffery Hale Hospital on Sept. 27 for the Voice of English-speaking Québec (VEQ) Quebec Health 101 Guide and Winter in Quebec City presentations.
