Work experience in Quebec

Your first job is an important step in getting work experience in Quebec. Your first experience will help you understand the pace of work in Quebec and meet new people.

Employers and employees must respect labour standards and working conditions to keep employees safe. Consult the CNESST website for more information (see the link below).

Writing a resumé

Your resumé is your professional portrait. Resumés in Quebec might look different than in your country of origin.

Do not put your social insurance number on your resumé. In Quebec, people do not mention their religious beliefs on their resumés.

SERY (Solidarité ethnique régionale de la Yamaska) can help you with writing your first resumé (see the Contact person section below).
