JQSI (Journées québécoises de la solidarité internationale), taking place from November 5-14, 2015, is Quebec’s annual celebration of international solidarity.
This year’s 19th edition builds on the 2015 World March of Women by inviting you to discover bonds of solidarity between women and women’s movements here and abroad – bonds that can help strengthen women's leadership in creating a more just world.
Organized in collaboration with international cooperation organizations working inQuebec,including Inter Pares, the JQSI will unfold in twelve of the province’s 17 regions, and will offer a wide variety of events and opportunities to discuss international solidarity issues that concern us all.
Inter Pares is proud to have helped organize JQSI and to once again coordinate JQSI’s activities in the Outaouais region this year. They are organized in collaboration with SOPAR, the Table Jeunesse-Gatineau, OREGAND, and Amitié Gatineau-Monde. Learn more about the events that will take place in the Outaouais region.
Whether it be inn Matane, Bamako, Ayacucho, or Granby, women are identifying their own needs, suggesting solutions and implementing concrete actions for social change. Let’s ensure that their actions are known and that their voices are being heard here, and beyond.
