Jean Boulet, Minister of Labour, Employment and Social Solidarity, Minister of Immigration, Francization and Integration and Minister Responsible for the Mauricie Region, announced today the 2022-2023 program for Journées Québec, with the aim of recruiting some 3,000 temporary foreign workers until March 2023.
To better match immigration to the needs of Quebec’s companies and regions and to meet specific workforce needs, Journées Québec’s 2022-2023 program has taken the strategic priority sectors of “Opération main-d’œuvre” into consideration. The health, education, engineering, teaching, educational childcare and information technology sectors were prioritized, while leaving significant room for other important sectors, such as the hotel, restaurant, manufacturing and maritime transportation sectors.
The 2022-2023 program is also evidence of the recruitment efforts of the Government of Quebec in Francophone countries and countries with an affinity for French to attract workers who will be able to more readily integrate into a French environment.
Journées Québec are organized by the Government of Quebec in collaboration with its partners, Montréal International, Québec International and the Société de développement économique de Drummondville.
