Collaborating with several municipalities in Montreal, this five-year project will build community-based programs that provide supportive environments and linkages for citizens of all ages dealing with serious diseases or in the later stages of their lives. The impact on quality of life of these community driven activities will be measured and the findings shared so that more communities can benefit.
