  • Let's be honest - who doesn't want paid vacations and a pension plan?

Quebec government jobs may not be the first idea you have considering certain restrictions and the requirement to speak French all the time. However, public service jobs are some of the most well-paid and benefit-rich careers out there. Let's be real - who doesn't love paid vacations, a pension plan, salary insurance, no office expenses, sick leave, and continuing education programs? 

There's a misconception that jobs of this nature require you to work in some kind of political or law enforcement function, but there are in fact a variety of careers available in public service. Sure, you can choose the obvious options like teaching and engineering, but did you know that you can become a government veterinarian?  

While applying to these jobs is a little more complicated than your standard job application, the process is still relatively simple. Keep in mind that one of the non-negotiables is that you have to be 100 percent fluent in French. But, if you're a resident of Quebec, that might not be a problem. 

Even the most casual public service jobs come with benefits and a salary that's unmatched on the regular job market. If you don't find what you're looking for, make sure to check again because there are always jobs available.
