Quebec Has Reserved Jobs For Newcomers Of Visible & Ethnic Minorities, Here's How To Apply

The Government of Quebec currently has a list of available jobs in Quebec reserved for immigrants of visible or ethnic minorities, as part of its "employment integration measure for newcomers who are members of visible and ethnic minorities."

Such employment offers are meant to help immigrants "gain their first work experience in Quebec in their field of expertise."

These are one-year positions, which the government says can then lead to "the opportunity to participate in a qualification process for the job class of the job held through the measure, which could lead to regular or casual employment in the public service."
