Matane’s accessible workforce objective

Recruitment Service

For FIDEL, attracting and retaining a dynamic workforce – comprising young, mature or immigrant workers – helps existing businesses to thrive and makes the region an attractive location for new businesses.

We are joining forces with our regional partners to establish a recruitment service which will help to attract, welcome and retain skilled workers in our region.

We have adopted a proactive approach to tackle labour shortage issues.
