Hélène Riel-Salvatore has hung up her hat as a teacher and program coordinator at McGill French Language Centre, but will continue to work towards better access to health and social services for English-speaking communities in Québec. Over her career, she initiated and animated FLC French courses for McGill HSS students with a constant passion and energy, and retirement will be anything but idle. Hélène Riel-Salvatore plans to remain active – including, to our great good fortune, within Dialogue McGill as senior advisor for Languages and Cultures.
