    Have you ever noticed that most of the volunteers are very busy people with a thousand and one responsibilities, that their hearts are so big that  they overflow in their huge smile? Have you noticed that volunteers work to build a warm and happy world and that they know their neighbors?

  • PAIR program : FREE automated calling service for seniors

    What is the Pair Program?

    The PAIR Program is a FREE automated calling service. PAIR is a daily call service that makes seniors and people at risk living alone feel more secure. These daily calls are reassuring for subscribers and their families. PAIR is offered by several local organizations across Quebec and was created in 1990. Since its launch, this service has made millions of calls and has rescued hundreds of people. Many lives have been saved!

    To register online, click HERE. You can also register by filling out the paper form, available here (formulaire-inscription-PAIR.pdf) or at the municipality.

    • The PAIR Program is completely free for seniors in Argenteuil; funding comes from the 2019-2023 Crime Prevention Plan;
    • Security calls are made between 7:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.
    • Security calls are always made at the same time;
    • If the member does not answer the first time on their call, there are 2 more "attempts" to call the member; Before triggering a PAIR alert, there is an interval of approximately 15 minutes between each attempt. For example, if the member was in the bathroom during their PAIR call, they confirm their presence with the second try, a few minutes later.
    • When calling the central, to confirm that the member is okay, he must press a number on the telephone keypad, wait for the thank you message and hang up; it is very important to wait for the thank you message before hanging up.
    • If we have an alert, we contact:
      • 1st The member, one last time
      • 2nd His respondents
      • 3rd Emergency services, if we have no answer
    • PAIR members are responsible for reporting their absence, if possible 24 hours in advance, by calling the absence number: a voicemail box open 24/7: 1-833-331-7247
  • Scholarship program for Gore students

    A few years ago, the Townships of Wentworth and Gore came together to set up a joint scholarship fund for students in our communities. The fund was named in honor of two of our citizens who died in tragic circumstances. In Gore, the fund was created in memory of Mr. Yvon Lacasse. Our citizens contributed in large numbers to build the fund and nearly $25,000 had been raised. Since the creation of this fund, several scholarships have been awarded and our first recipients have now graduated. The municipality is sensitive to the constantly rising cost of living and the difficulties encountered by our young people in pursuing their studies after high school.

    This is why we have decided to relaunch the scholarship program to welcome new candidates and award new recurring scholarships. In fact, upon acceptance into the scholarship program, the candidate will receive an annual recurring amount until the end of their studies. The scholarships are $250/year in high school, $500/year in CEGEP and $1,000/year in university. Scholarships of $1,000 are also awarded for “DEPs” and other technical training. The Entry Criteria are as follows:

    1. Applicants' family must be permanent residents of Gore.

    2. The candidate must have passed all their classes for the 2022-2023 school year.

    3. The candidate must have proof of school registration for the year 2023-2024

    4. The applicant agrees to participate in events associated with the scholarship award.

    To submit an application, the student must complete the Scholarship 2023.pdf for the scholarship program  and provide all the documents required before August 13 at 5 PM. The form and documents must be sent to Paul Gervais at pgervais@cantondegore.qc.ca
