Get your first Québec work experience in your own field

If you're an immigrant and haven't yet had a chance to work in your own field in Canada or the U.S., the Employment Integration Program for Immigrants and Visible Minorities (PRIIME) can open doors with potential employers. Your new employer could receive a subsidy to cover certain additional expenses related to hiring you, including the salary of a support person, training costs and the cost of specific integration measures.

Warning! Be aware that individuals falsely claiming to be Emploi-Québec representatives are using the Internet to offer fake job opportunities in Québec to persons living abroad. They are attempting to collect personal information and extract money from the persons that they target. Please note that Emploi-Québec never asks candidates to provide documents or payment in order to work in Québec and does not send out job offers by email.
