Though you don't need to be a professional actor, the company is looking for outgoing Montrealers who are regulars at a sandwich restaurant in Montreal. Only Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada can apply.
Auditions for "Project Sandwich Montreal" will be held online on July 16 and the shoot will take place on a day between July 23 and 27.
If selected, sandwich-lovers have to take a COVID-19 test on July 20 or 21, so you'd need to keep both dates open until the test is booked.
Those who get hired will make $75 for a wardrobe appointment, $75 for a COVID-19 test, and $750 for one day of filming. If your footage is used in the final commercial, you'd receive an additional $1,500 to $2,000.
Sandwich Commercial Actor
Salary: $750.00 to $2,250.00
Company: Groundglass Casting
Who Should Apply: Montreal-area sandwich lovers aged 18 to 75 years old. No acting experience is required, and this job posting specifically asks for Anglophones.
The 100,000 square-foot residence is designed specifically for 300 students, built with custom storage and a workstation in each room, along with two shared study rooms, colour schemes tailored to students' preferences and custom furniture by Werkliv.
Le Mildoré will be the tallest residential building in Montreal to be built of steel instead of concrete, and will only have bicycle parking. The temperature in each apartment will be controlled by a heating and cooling system that uses the building's water supply.
Rent will start at approximately $885 monthly per student, minus expenses.
Gender and sexuality identified as areas of difficulty
The school board passed a resolution at the end of March, banning the use of the n-word in its schools.
Testimony solicited from the public included accounts from both students and parents that shared their challenges and difficulties in LBPSB schools.
Through the accounts, the task force identified four major "recurring themes":
Gender stereotypes that dictate what is "appropriate" for boys and girls
Gender stereotypes that produce a "narrow understanding" of masculinity
Gender-based double standards
Bullying linked to gender and sexuality
The report found that schools' dress codes singled out girls by forbidding them from wearing spaghetti-strap tank tops, short shorts and crop tops, explicitly banning "clothing that is unnecessarily sexualised" and "skimpy or revealing clothing."
Parents offer accounts of sexism, racism, transphobia and homophobia
One parent said they raised their seven-year-old daughter without gendering her toys, but after attending first grade at an LBPSB school, she began to tell her parents that some toys were only for boys.
Another parent said, "My son loves the colors pink and purple, but he constantly tells me he doesn’t want to wear t-shirts in those colors to school because people have told him (other students) that those are girl colors."
Mothers of Black sons that attended LBPSB schools — which have a predominantly white student body, according to the report — said they felt their sons were being subjected to racism by teaching staff.
"One boy told his mother that his teacher just doesn’t like him because he’s Black [...] On one occasion in particular, the young man was suspended because the teacher said that she felt 'threatened' by him, however, the young man said that he didn’t do anything but ask why she was sending him down to the office," the report read.
The full report, including the Task Force's recommendations, is available here.
It's no question that summer is a favourite season in Montreal — and with good reason. Once the sun arrives, the city comes alive with plenty of sights to see, things to do and places to go.
Summer 2021 promises to be especially fun because, after a year and a bit of being cooped up indoors, what could be better than soaking up Montreal at its finest?
The sunny season is also known for another Montreal tradition: moving day. With July 1 being when most new leases begin, the end of June is a flurry of activity as people move out and move in all across the city.
Whether you're new to Montreal, are just moving across town, or are simply looking for ways to make this summer an unforgettable one, there are tons of ways to appreciate Montreal.

Why You Need To Do It: With over 3,000 kilometres of bikeways, the island and Greater Montreal are a cyclist's dream. Not only is biking a fun, efficient and eco-friendly way to get from point A to point B, but it's also a great way to explore the city.

Whether you're a seasoned pro or a beginner, getting on the water is a fun way to discover Montreal and maybe even meet new people.
Why You Need To Do It: Mont-Royal remains one of the city's most popular destinations. Not only is it accessible via walking or transit, but it also offers hiking trails that are suitable for all levels.
Pack that knapsack (like the one you could win with Drink Pepsi Get Summer Stuff contest) with all your favourite hiking goodies. Don't forget your camera because you're going to want to take a pic or two once you reach the top.
Why You Need To Do It: Montreal has some of the best museums in the world. No matter what you're interested in, there is an exhibition that will pique your interests (and get you out of the summer heat).
The recently refurbished Biodôme houses five diverse ecosystems where you can see everything from penguins to exotic birds. The city's history museum, Pointe-à-Callière, has exhibits spanning First Nations history to the modern day. And for art buffs, the Musée d'art contemporain de Montreal showcases works from local and international artists.
Why You Need To Do It: Summers are made for grilling and chilling. Whether you're a fan of a classic steak, some grilled chicken breast or know the perfect recipe for seared aubergine, there's always something delicious to sink your teeth into at a barbecue.
While you don't necessarily need a backyard to have a barbecue, you do need a grill. Fortunately, Pepsi is giving some away with their Drink Pepsi Get Summer Stuff contest.
Why You Need To Do It: Montreal has an iconic arts and culture scene. Wandering around the city and exploring street art is a feast for the eyes and a great way to get to know the place.
