The Engram Group is proud to be a partner in a study aimed at facilitating the attraction and retention of immigrant labour in Quebec manufacturing SMEs located in the regions.
Led by Concordia University and supported by the Future Skills Centre of Canada, the main objective of this research will be to develop best practices in order to provide Quebec manufacturing SMEs with tools to recruit and retain an immigrant workforce.
“Today in Canada, more than 815,800 positions are vacant and Quebec is the second province with the greatest need for manpower. Manufacturing SMEs, particularly those located in the regions, are among the hardest hit. However, one talent pool remains underutilized, namely that of immigrant workers,” said Alicia Piechowiak, PhD candidate and principal researcher. “So it’s critical to understand how to help these companies better integrate this workforce as quickly as possible.” she adds.
“The Engram Group is very proud to be able to take part in this research to help Quebec Inc. and will do everything in its power to ensure its success,” declared the President of the Engram Group, Rémy Franzoni. “The fact that companies as important as Davie Shipyard Canada are associated with the realization of this study shows how important this issue is for Quebec,” he adds.
