Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE -

The Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Comp­ton-Stanstead MP and Min­is­ter of In­ter­na­tional De­vel­op­ment and La Franco­phonie, Mr. Guy Hardy, Saint-François MNA, and Mr. Jac­ques Madore, Pre­fect of the Coat­i­cook MRC said they are thrilled with the ex­ploratory tour of the Coat­i­cook re­gion and its busi­nesses or­ga­nized for im­mi­grants seek­ing em­ploy­ment in the area. This event is a joint ini­tia­tive of the Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau and Mr. Guy Hardy. "The ac­tiv­ity tak­ing place to­day aims to en­cour­age the par­tic­i­pa­tion of im­mi­grants within Québec so­ci­ety and to strengthen the ca­pac­ity of our lo­cal busi­nesses. By con­tin­u­ing to col­lab­o­rate on a re­gional level, we will turn this fine pro­ject into a suc­cess story, both for the new­com­ers and for our en­tire com­mu­nity," said the Honourable Mrs. Bibeau. "I am very pleased to see the work that has gone on in as­sist­ing im­mi­grants in the St. François rid­ing and the Estrie re­gion. The event to­day is the re­sult of the syn­ergy and col­lab­o­ra­tion amongst stake­hold­ers from all lev­els of govern­ment who have worked in a con­certed man­ner to of­fer im­mi­grants the chance to meet top em­ploy­ers in the Coat­i­cook re­gion. Québec fully as­sumes its re­spon­si­bil­i­ties in the re­cep­tion, French lan­guage train­ing and in­te­gra­tion, in­clud­ing em­ploy­ment, of im­mi­grants in the prov­ince," men­tioned MNA Guy Hardy. "We are proud to wel­come a group of im­mi­grants to our area. We ob­vi­ously wish them suc­cess in their job search. By the same to­ken, we want to en­cour­age new­com­ers to in­creas­ingly con­sider the prospect of set­tling in the re­gions," said the Pre­fect Mr. Jac­ques Madore. This ex­ploratory tour of Coat­i­cook is a lo­cal ini­tia­tive al­low­ing im­mi­grants look­ing for jobs to visit the city and the sur­round­ing area. Four com­pa­nies with sev­eral po­si­tions to fill also par­tic­i­pated. In ad­di­tion, a lunch was hosted in the Coat­i­cook MRC of­fice for the par­tic­i­pants and the hu­man re­sources rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the par­tic­i­pat­ing com­pa­nies.
