On Tuesday March 28, 2017 Mr. Kim Reid – Founder/Operator of On Rock Community Services drove all the way to Bishop's University from Montreal to speak to my students. Enrolled in SOC308 Social Policy, the course is an introduction to the sociological study of social policy in the Canadian context and among many things, examines civil society in relation to a rapidly changing policy context. Students acquired a broad understanding of Canadian social policy in the context of a “globalized” world. Various case studies were used to highlight the different policies that affects us both directly and indirectly. The latter included tackling child poverty and homelessness in Quebec. Thus, given Kim's extensive experience in these areas of working with children and adults in need, it made him the perfect guest speaker.
