Going Beyond the Numbers

The state of employment for English speakers in Québec

PERT’s research has shown that English speakers trail behind their French counterparts in employment and income. The latest Census data shows us that these trends have worsened.

Panelists will discuss what is contributing to these gaps while also providing a better picture of which English-speakers are facing employment and income challenges.

Community Partnerships for Effective Service Delivery

Québec’s regions face particular labour market challenges. This is especially true for English speakers living in the regions. It is therefore crucial to develop adaptable programs that can be tailored to each region's needs.

Panelists will share insights obtained from RDN's recent Employment Strategy initiative, and discuss the challenges, and opportunities that arise when developing effective community partnerships.

English-speaking Quebecers and Québec’s Public Service

English speakers have been underrepresented in Québec’s public service for decades. This panel will dive into some of the challenges and opportunities involved in attempting to meaningfully increase the diversity of workers in Québec’s public sector.

Experiential Learning and the Future of Workforce Development
