Launching a study to better understand the local labor market needs for the English-speaking communities of the Gaspésie-Magdalen Islands region

January 25, 2021

Grosse-Île, January 25, 2021 – CAMI (Council for Anglophone Magdalen Islanders) and its Gaspesian counterparts (Vision and the Committee for Anglophone Social Action or CASA), have received financial assistance from the Community Health and Social Services Network (CHSSN) through the Enhancing Regional Community Capacity program, which is funded by the provincial Secrétariat aux relations avec les Québécois d’expression anglaise (SRQEA).

This study will be carried out in part using quantitative data collected from official bodies such as Statistics Canada, Employment Canada, and other partners, as well as more specific information gathered from local authorities in their respective fields (surveys and interviews). In the archipelago, this research will benefit the structural approach to the development of the English-speaking community of the Magdalen Islands led by CAMI via their “Future in Now” project, which has resulted in the production of a community strategic plan that seeks to address systemic issues affecting community vitality.

A better knowledge of the job market will enable the English-speaking communities of the Gaspésie-Magdalen Island region to make informed decisions concerning promising employment sectors for its members and thus deploy concrete action plans for the development of their
respective communities.

As this labor market study concerns all English-speaking people in the Gaspésie-Magdalen Islands region, it will be lead elsewhere in the territory by Vision Gaspé-Percé Now and CASA.
