Les Centres Residentiels (Residential Centers).
Canadian Inst. for Adult Education, Montreal (Quebec).
Results of a survey of residential adult education in the Province of Quebec are presented in this report. The existence of widespread financial difficulties is documented, together with a frequent lack of adequate community services and suitable facilities. Chapter I reviews the need of nonprofit groups for residential facilities and indicates the extent of available human and material resources. The next chapter is concerned with general features of residential centers (educational services, administration, accessibility, nonprofit policy, homelike environment), the role of residential centers, and the need for new centers. Finally, in Chapter III, recommendations are laid down for the creation of a new residential center, the maintenance and subsidizing of an existing center (the Institut Cooperatif Desjardins), and provisions (under a special independent committee) for coordinating the work of residential adult education centers in Quebec and promoting their development. Included are ten tables (enrollment data, facilities, programs, sponsorship), questionnaires, religious and secular organizations surveyed, excerpts from the by-laws of L'Institut Canadien d'Education des Adultes and its council and committee rosters.
