Essential Montreal Jobs & Volunteer Opportunities That Are In High Demand Right Now
  • Here are listed nine essential Montreal jobs and volunteer opportunities.
  • Essential services in Quebec are still open and operational — and many of them require assistance.
  • The Government of Quebec has also put a call out for volunteers.

While many businesses are closed during the COVID-19 outbreak, some services have been deemed essential and require as much help as possible. If you're not in the market for a new job in Montreal, however, the Quebec government has called for volunteers to assist with a range of essential services. So, if you're sick and tired of sitting around at home, why not consider using your time to help people? 

Keep in mind that public health authorities recommend that you stay at home and follow the government's regulations to prevent catching the virus.

But sometimes, people need to lend a helping hand — while maintaining a two-meter distance from others.

On the job front, you'd be surprised to find that many companies are starving for dedicated employees to help deal with the incredibly high demand.

Food delivery services, specifically, require all hands on deck. 

Some of you might not be looking for a job, however, and are simply looking for a way to help the effort to fight against COVID-19. Luckily for you, the government has started a website for exactly that purpose.

Here are nine essential jobs and volunteer opportunities in Montreal that are in high demand right now.
