Thank you, Mr. Speaker. After 31 years of teaching and serving the students of the Nahendeh and Dehcho region, I am saddened and happy at the same time to announce that, after this school year, Terry Jaffray will be retiring.

Terry worked at the Echo-Dene, Thomas Simpson Secondary, and Bompas Elementary Schools and at Dehcho Divisional Education Council. Terry was inducted into the 2017 Education Hall of Fame and received the NWT Superintendents Association Leadership Award.

Terry said she will miss being around people all day and working with the trustees at the council meetings. Thank you, Terry, for your hard work and dedication. I wish you the best in your retirement. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Question 345-18(3): Adult Day Program
Oral Questions

June 1st, 2018

Julie Green Yellowknife Centre

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, my questions are for the Minister of Health and Social Services. On this Intergenerational Day, I would like to see him put some words into action about seniors. In February I asked the Minister about the status of contracting a new provider for the Adult Day Program in Yellowknife. The Minister said, "I am hoping that we can get this contract out as quickly as possible, hopefully before the end of this fiscal year." Can the Minister provide us with an update? Thank you.
