Montréal job market opportunities for Syrian refugees

Day of familiarization and meetings

Monday, May 30, 2016 from 1 P.M. to 7 P.M.

The integration of Syrian refugees into Quebec society is mainly achieved through their entry onto the job market. It is our collective responsibility to support them in their search for employment and thereby allow them to reach their full potential for integration and to contribute to the city’s social and economic development.
