In this context, the Consortium’s first research project focused on a specific employment sector, namely the Quebec public service. Despite government measures, English-speaking Quebecers continue to be under-represented in this sector.
The first phase of this research project is divided into three parts: 1) the research team conducted a literature review to inventory programs, courses, and internships related to the public service that are currently offered in Quebec’s post-secondary institutions (regardless of language of instruction); 2) interviews were conducted with those responsible for internships in post-secondary institutions (regardless of language of instruction), as well as in the Quebec public service; 3) the question of French language proficiency requirements was also examined in the context of our literature review and interviews.
