Quebec Jobs That Will Let You Enjoy The Great Outdoors & Make Money At The Same Time
  • Here are 8 open jobs in Quebec that come with a lot of time spent outdoors.
  • From climbing trees to conducting trains (no experience necessary!), these are the positions to apply for if you don't want to be stuck at a desk.

If you're someone who likes a job that lets you work outside and get some fresh air while you make your way, have I got the list for you. While there weren't a million positions for Christmas tree farms like I imagined, there were still a solid number of jobs available in Quebec right now that will allow you to brave the cold, get some exercise and be in the winter wonderland that is our province right now, all while you work.

I've had a number of jobs where I was outside for the majority of the work and I have to say, it really is a lucky gig. Sure, the summers are hot and the winters are cold. But outdoor jobs allow you to be in touch with nature and feel alive.

It might seem nice sitting inside at an office desk when temperatures really drop, but otherwise, office work is pretty boring in comparison to the jobs listed below. 

From landscape design to camp counselling and some other random finds that I've tossed into the mix, here is a list of some awesome Quebec jobs that will let you enjoy the great outdoors while you make your money.

(And don't worry, snow removal isn't one of them.)
