Gouvernement du Québec

Local participation

Listening tour

The forum was nourished by a listening tour on the promotion of diversity, the fight against discrimination and labour needs led by the minister of Immigration, Diversity and Inclusiveness, David Heurtel, and the minister of Employment and Social Solidarity, François Blais, since the beginning of November, in a dozen regions of Québec. As part of this tour, the ministers met with economic, social and community stakeholders to:

  • Hear them talk about best practices and success stories in their regions
  • Hold discussions, in particular, with local businesses and economic and community organizations in order to align immigration objectives with labour needs, particularly in the regions
  • Discuss concrete solutions to the challenges of promoting diversity and fighting discrimination
