Provincial Employment Roundtable

The Provincial Employment Roundtable (PERT) is a non-profit multi-stakeholder initiative focused on addressing the employment and employability challenges facing Québec’s English-speaking community.

A Word from our President

“The creation of the Provincial Employment Roundtable is a milestone in the life of the English Speaking community of Quebec. Through PERT, we now have the capacity to interact effectively and tenaciously with all levels of government in an effort to increase the employment opportunities of English speakers and improve the Quebec economy.”

James Hughes, President of the Provincial Employment Roundtable

Do you want to boost your French skills in the workplace?

@YESMontreal four-week course will help you improve your French skills while offering a variety of activities led by French speakers and industry professionals that will bring you closer to your professional goals.

#DidYouKnow English speakers tend to earn a lower median after-tax income than French speakers.

This is likely explained by the higher unemployment rates they experience, as well as the type of occupations that English speakers occupy.

Looking forward to the year ahead!

In 2022, we continue our commitment to developing policies to improve the employability of English-speakers in Québec.

This year you can expect:
- The release of our foundational research projects
- The solidification of our sectoral tables
