While it's easy for us all to just want to hibernate in our beds and binge-watch Netflix until winter is over, a little fresh air always does one a world of good. And this Quebec hike with a sublime landscape is an ideal spot to explore during the cold season.
Located in Saint-Fulgence in the Saguenay—Lac-Saint-Jean region, Parc national des Monts-Valin feels like you're inside a snow globe once it's filled up with fluffy white snowflakes everywhere.
The national park's winter schedule starts on December 10. Whenever you decide to venture there, you can make your way to the Discovery and Visitors Centre starting at 8 a.m. to decide which trails you want to embark on.
If you'd rather cross-country ski than hike, there are five trails you can try that have levels ranging from easy to difficult.
For those all about the views, there's a heated hut located on a hill 6 kilometres from the centre where you can rest and enjoy the fairytale-like panoramic view.
With 77 kilometres of marked trails available to anyone who wants to go on a snowshoeing adventure, this spot may just convince you to love wintertime. And here's a tip: The prettiest lookouts and viewpoints are found on Pic-de-la-Tête-de-Chien, Pic-de-la-Hutte and Mirador trails.
And for those who aren't too big on winter workouts, you'll want to check out the Fantôme Express, a caterpillar shuttle that will take you to the Vallée des Fantômes that looks straight out of a Christmas movie.
Anyone who makes it to the top of this 984-metre mountain will get to admire a magical snowy landscape with breathtaking views.
It may be a five-hour drive from Montreal, but it's certainly worth the road trip.
Women will lead five of Quebec's eight largest cities following the 2021 municipal elections.
The biggest headline of the night may have been Valérie Plante's triumph over old foe Denis Coderre in Montreal, but across the province, the faces of municipal politics have become more gender-balanced.
According to the latest counts and projections, France Bélisle (Gatineau), Catherine Fournier (Longueuil), Évelyne Beaudin (Sherbrooke) and Julie Dufour (Saguenay) are all also on their way to their respective (and figurative) city hall corner offices.
In Quebec City, it seemed for a while like Marie-Josée Savard would join them. Multiple outlets had even called the election for her until the vote count for her opponent surged into the evening. Bruno Marchand ultimately claimed victory.
Mayor Plante commented on the historic nature of her second mandate in her victory speech Sunday night.
"Four years ago, Montrealers elected the first woman mayor in the history of the City of Montreal," she said.
"Tonight, they told us again, 'yes, this mayor, we're going to continue to work with her, we trust her!'"
This year, for the first time, Montrealers will have two women leading the city, as Projet Montréal's Dominique Ollivier is set to take over as president of the Executive Committee.
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 only education requirement is a high school diploma.
While benefits officers review and process employment insurance applications, the government describes a wide range of duties for program officers, including coordination with local stakeholders regarding services from the ESDC.
Service Canada says it has EI processing centres and "program branches" in Montreal, Laval, Boucherville, Drummondville, Thetford Mines, Shawinigan, Quebec City and Saguenay, but that it may assign alternative workplaces to applicants who don't live in these areas.
In addition to a high school diploma, Service Canada is looking for applicants who have experience totalling six months "in delivering services or programs to the general public" or "interpreting and applying legislation or policies."
The language requirement is either French-only or French and English, depending on the position, according to the recruitment page.
