Quebec is recruiting in Morocco


Quebec is facing a shortage of health personnel. To solve this problem, the Ministry of Health and Social Services is authorized to recruit more than 4,000 health workers – especially nurses – abroad, especially in the Maghreb for the period 2021-2022.

In all, more than 4,000 jobs in the health sector are to be filled in Quebec over the 2021-2022 period against 330 in 2019-2020 and 1,700 in 2020-2021, reports Radio-Canada. The demand for labor is thus exploding for foreign workers. “For 2021-2022, Recrutement Santé Québec (RSQ) received more than 4,000 mandates from 28 health and social services establishments, mainly for the job titles of nurses (3,500), social workers, ‘speech therapists and medical physicists, explains Marjorie Larouche, spokesperson for the Ministry of Health and Social Services (MSSS).

In detail, the CIUSSS du Nord-de-Île-de-Montréal needs 800 health workers, 90 for the Outaouais, and 28 for the west of Montreal. Recruitment missions will take place in different countries and regions, including France, Belgium, Maghreb, Brazil and Lebanon. “It is very important to specify that this is the wish of the establishments, but that the assessment of needs and feasibility is still in progress since it must take into account […] the feasibility of the administrative procedures of immigration and graduation recognition, specifies Marjorie Larouche, spokesperson for the ministry.

“The assessment should also take into account the capacity of establishments and regions to accommodate these international workers, since their integration requires essential conditions to promote retention,” she adds.
