The document underscores Val-des-Monts’ commitment to fostering the well-being of both families and seniors living in the Municipality.

Question Title

* 1. For this exercise, the Citizens Committee has defined a family as follows:

'' The Citizens Committee believes « family » should be defined in the broadest, most-inclusive terms, and should be anchored in both intergenerational ties and the ownership of care and responsibility.

Families no longer fit into a single mould, because people’s individual and collective paths lead to multiple life situations: single-parent and two-parent families; heterosexual and homosexual; shared-custody families; blended families; nuclear families; extended families; foster families and traditional families. ''

How do you assess this definition of « family »? (Adequate, inadequate and/or incomplete) 
Which features or components, if any, would you add to the definition?
