The Pontiac MRC Council has requested that a local representative be included on the Board of Directors of the Centre intégré de santé et de services sociaux de l’Outaouais. In a media release, elected officials say they feel excluded from the decision-making process about services and changes that can greatly affect them locally. The Council of Mayors of the MRC Pontiac therefore calls for the appointment of a local representative to ensure the smooth flow of information between the Board of Directors of the CISSS de l'Outaouais and the Pontiac.
