Presentation of the members of the board of directors
Inspiration from France to pay it forward, from "The Man Who Planted Trees": The character of a human being reveals exceptional qualities, if we can observe his action during long years. If this action is devoid of all selfishness, if the idea that directs it is of an exemplary generosity, if it has not sought a reward anywhere and if, in addition, it has left visible marks on the world, then there is no risk of error, before an unforgettable character.
France is the Executive Director of ALPA-Association Lavalloise des Personnes Aidantes.

Since her arrival at the FADOQ - Laval Region, she has participated in the revitalization of this network through her dynamism and creativity.

Guy is the Executive Director of the CCRVA - Centre Communautaire Le Rendez-Vous des Aînés.
"Too many seniors are alone, too many seniors are poor and so many seniors need help. To be part of TRCAL is to have the privilege of having a voice to speak out on their realities, their daily lives, and to participate in thinking about solutions for them. In short, with Carole and our colleagues on the Board of Directors, we want to contribute to the dignity of our Laval seniors!
