A committee that supports the English-speaking community

Provisions in the law specify specific means available to Jeffery Hale – Saint Brigid's (JHSB), particularly with regard to recognized local management. They also provide for specific protection that supports the mission to serve the English-speaking population. Among other things, the law allows for the creation of an Advisory Committee.

  • One person appointed by the board of directors of the grouped institution’s foundations;
  • One person appointed by members of the grouped institution;
  • Two persons co-opted by the members referred to in subparagraphs 1 to 7, to ensure the region’s English-speaking community is properly represented.
