'Concrete solutions such as Jetravaille! will not only help businesses find workers, but it will also provide job seekers with a simple way to apply for openings'
Quebec has launched a new online placement service to help provincial employers make their labour needs known and enable jobseekers to apply for jobs easily.
"The new labour market reality caused by the pandemic will result in a high unemployment rate in certain sectors and a significant labour shortage in others. Concrete solutions such as Jetravaille! will not only help businesses find workers, but it will also provide jobseekers with a simple way to apply for openings,” says Jean Boulet, minister of labour, employment and social solidarity and minister responsible for the Mauricie Region. “I strongly encourage employers and people looking for work to register today.”
The service uses geolocation and artificial intelligence (AI) technology and enables personalized job searches and optimal candidate-employer matching, says the government. Priority will be given to processing job offers from businesses in priority services and activities and those that are authorized to resume their activities.
Jetravaille! will replace the temporary web platform that has been online at Quebec.ca since April 21. Businesses that posted job offers on the temporary web platform will have to register again, according to the government.
Quebec has also launched a virtual toolkit that can help and support employers and workers in complying with the sanitary instructions issued by the public health authorities.
On June 1, Quebec started allowing private health-care services, such as dentists and physiotherapists, to reopen. However, dental health professionals in Quebec are divided when asked if they are ready to reopen their clinics.
