Users Committee

Who are we?

Our users committees protect the rights of all individuals who receive care and services from a health and social services institution in Quebec. 

Within the Montréal West Island Integrated University Health and Social Services Centre, you may contact either the users committee for your facility or the Montréal West Island Integrated Centre users committee (ICUC) – the choice is yours. 

The role of the users committees

All of the Montréal West Island Integrated University Health and Social Services Centre users committees have a mandate to:

  • Provide users with information about their rights and responsibilities.
  • Promote quality of life improvements for users, and evaluate user satisfaction with the services received from the institution.
  • Advocate for the individual and collective rights and interests of users in their dealings with the institution.
  • Upon request, guide and assist users in their actions, including lodging a complaint, should the need arise.

Within the MWI IUHSSC, we have eight local users committees and eight residents committees.

FAQ

Which users committee should I join? 

The decision is yours. You can join a local users committee and/or the Montréal West Island Integrated Centre users committee (ICUC).

You’ll receive the same level of attention and respect regardless of which committee you choose.

What’s the difference between my local users committee and the Integrated Centre users committee (ICUC)?

The ICUC carries out the same functions as the local users committees.

However, in addition, it:

  • coordinates and synchronizes the activities of all users and residents committees of the Montréal West Island Integrated University Health and Social Services Centre ;
  • represents all users in its dealings with Montréal West Island Integrated University Health and Social Services Centre authorities. It also speaks for all users and local committees in its dealings with the:
    • Board of Directors
    • Vigilance and Quality Committee
    • Risk Management Committee 

What is the composition of the Montréal West Island Integrated University Health and Social Services Centre users committee?

The Integrated Centre users committee (ICUC) is comprised of six members elected by the local users committees and five representatives elected by the local residents committees. 

All committees are represented on the Integrated Centre users committee (ICUC).
