Quebec labour shortage: we are fighting for your business!

Many of you have to deal with the unprecedented worker shortage Québec’s businesses – and those across Canada - are going through. We are doing everything we can to ensure that governments understand the seriousness of the situation and we are pushing them to provide you with tangible short-, medium- and long-term support.

A big win by CFIB: concrete actions by the government! 

The provincial government has introduced three initiatives that will alleviate the stress of the labour shortage!

  • Announcement of a huge government push to offer support in human resources management, recruitment and automation.
  • Review of the immigration selection grid to better align the profile of newcomers with jobs available in businesses.
  • Investments to promote technical and vocational training.

We are recommending a four-pronged solution

We are at the forefront of getting your message across loud and clear to decision makers!

We have presented to Parliamentary committees, pre-budget consultations, the Commission des partenaires du marché du travail, Comité des intervenants économiques du ministère de l’immigration, the Comité de suivi du Rendez-Vous national sur la main-d’œuvre, etc.!

Also, in the media, we consistently call for tangible government actions to help you cope with the employee shortage. Here is a list of some of our initiatives:
