The government is in the process of filling a Service Canada job bank and it's advertising salaries of between $61,152 and $65,887.
On an online recruitment page, the Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) office says it needs to fill 45 benefits officer and program officer positions in Quebec and encourages qualified individuals to apply.

"The idea is not to condense the working hours into [four] days, but rather to review our ways of doing things and our quality time invested, with the aim of working better!" Eidos Head of Studio David Anfossi explained in a Q&A.
"Above all, we want to increase the productivity and well-being of our employees."
He said the company is currently working on a transition plan. One idea is to reduce all meetings within the company from one hour to 30 minutes.
Anfossi suggested pandemic-related remote work restrictions and emphasis on employee well-being pushed the company to rethink its approach to its operations and culture. He also said Eidos was inspired by a four-day workweek pilot project in Iceland.
He called the move to reduce working hours "another step towards the embodiment of the studio's values, building a healthy, creative, and sustainable work environment for our employees."
Eidos is responsible for projects such as Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers video game adaptations, among others.
