The economy picks up just as all those affecting the Delivery of canadian emergency (PKU) need to think about what will happen at the end of the program.

The unemployed are eligible to apply for regular benefits from employment insurance.

But what is he self-employed, contractual and vulnerable?

“There are persons, indeed, who will not be eligible for regular benefits of unemployment insurance, so it will have to find ways to reintegrate them as quickly as possible in the labour market”, informed the minister of Labour, Jean Boulet.

According to him, the solution goes through the training.

“There will certainly be the possibility for these people, to assess the profile, the qualifications and skills of the person. You will be able to accompany them to a training and integration into the labor market in a sector that is growing.”

The unemployed can now contact an agent for assistance in employment through Services Québec.

“It will be necessary to accompany the employees who are less qualified and who have been most severely affected by the pandemic,” said minister Boulet.
