The first snowflakes have not yet fallen, but now the tourism industry must fill 27,000 positions in Quebec for the winter season.
The regions of Montérégie, Montreal, the Laurentians and Quebec City are among those with the most pressing needs. Among the tourism businesses that will be open during the winter, nearly 69% of them have manpower needs to be met, according to the Alliance de industrie tourisme du Québec, which released a press release Wednesday announcing the launch of a campaign, entitled “Finding a job in tourism” is full time, to attract workers to the sector.
“Working in tourism is more than a job, it’s a way of life! “, Maintains Martin Soucy, president of the Alliance, in the same press release. Companies and the various tourism sectors in Quebec are real places of learning, because we can progress in the company. Tourism organizations are the pride of their community and working there contributes to the influence of its region. ”
