This device, which puts in relation of the companies of the region of Chaudière-Appalaches with French applicants, is also offering an accompanying change of life.
This is one of the territories of Quebec, which has the lowest unemployment rate (3.6% in December 2019, compared to 5.3% for the whole of la Belle Province) : the region of Chaudière-Appalaches, is located on the south shore of the St. Lawrence, is in need of labor- and it is to France that she decided to turn to fill its shortage of workers.

In February 2019, elected officials and businesses in the region - in partnership with the development agency Québec international and the agencies and Business Class Temporis - have joined forces to create "Gateway", a recruitment program for direct and permanent with the Hexagon. It was the French Valerie Hardouin, installed in the Beautiful Province since July 2018 where it has opened the first franchise Temporis du Québec, which deals with the recruitment and support of candidates French.

How does the device "Gateway" ?
This program allows companies that adhere to it (moderately a small fee of 500 canadian dollars) to be able to offer five offers of posts. These are investigated by Quebec International, which verifies that these jobs are included on the list of jobs in shortage, established by the provincial government, and that international recruitment is possible. Then, Temporis displays the posts - these are also listed on the website of Pole emploi international mobility - and attends the pre-screening of candidates in terms of what is required by the company (qualification, number of years of experience, etc) It is quite sharp - a set of technical tests may be required - bearing in mind that we also verify the seriousness of the approach. Because between saying, "I want to go to Quebec," and "I'm from in Quebec, there is sometimes a gap... such A life change, this is not like moving between Bourges and Paris or between Bordeaux and Toulouse - this is not trivial !
The program includes sessions of recruitment in France ?
Everything is generally done at a distance, by phone or Skype, but we also regularly organise events in agencies Temporis in france, with the support of the local Employment centre. In 2019, so we went to Lille, Orléans, Bourges, Cholet, or even La Roche-sur-Yon. Other missions will take place in 2020, as the craze is important. This is a wish of Québec international and of the Chaudière-Appalaches to go to the heart of the French regions, both because many events are already proposed in Paris, but also because it is a territory which is likely to be of interest to people living in the province. Chaudière-Appalaches is a region perfect for lovers of nature and the great outdoors, knowing that Quebec city is not very far away. It is a territory with a great quality of life, where there is time for family, friends and leisure activities in the open air !
once selected, workers also have the advantage of being accompanied...
Yes : the "immigration" (proceedings, costs) is supported by the company - sometimes it even happens that some of them offer a "package" of arrival (plane ticket, for example) to their new employee. From my side, I accompany the candidate in his relocation : "I see with him where to settle, what are the administrative procedures to be completed (bank, social Security, etc). The worker is taken in hand from A to Z, just like his or her spouse, if any, which has issued an open work permit. Once the family installed, I am involved in the effect of sending the nomination of the other member of the couple within the network of the Chaudière-Appalaches and the returns can be very fast : among the new arrivals, both spouses looking for work have found one of only fifteen days.
How people have been able to benefit from the program ?
Between February and early December 2019, 44 workers have been recruited via this mechanism. A dozen have already arrived. In addition to the cover, the advantage of "Gateway" is that a candidate can be presented to several potential employers and choose the company they prefer. For example, a welder has been postulated recently in the program, and it so happens that I have four businesses that are looking for welders at this time. After maintenance, I saw that it corresponded to three bids, it may, therefore, have three interviews. Has then to decide where he wants to work.
What types of positions are offered through the program, "Gateway" ?
The dominant sector is industry, but the spectrum is very wide, since we have too many needs in catering, health care (nurses) in computer science (technicians, analyst programmers, network administrators). Drivers, heavy and super heavy are also very sought after. Currently, a thirty member companies have offers on courses and about a hundred positions are to be filled.

On the Gateway model, we have recently created, with three other players, a device dedicated to the agri-food sector, because we have made the observation that, in this area, the demand is huge in Quebec. This alliance is called TIBCA, the acronym of Temporis, Immensum (a law firm specializing in immigration law), Brière (a group that supports companies in their development) and Collin Agri-food, a recruiter in the sector. We are in the process of deploying this offer - we have just signed an agreement with the Conseil des industriels laitiers du Québec (CILQ), which represents 140 companies - and all of the positions are not yet visible on our site. But, if you are interested in Quebec and that you have a profile, "agri" (agricultural engineer, welder on tank, maintenance technician at the factory, etc) please do not hesitate to apply !
