MONTREAL, Feb. 8 /CNW Telbec/ - The Community Economic Development and
Employability Corporation (CEDEC) is currently recruiting underemployed
and unemployed English-speaking Montreal citizens, aged 45 years and
older, to participate in a survey on employability.
This 10 minute survey will ask questions regarding their needs and
challenges in finding employment. The survey results will be used to
build awareness of the barriers that affect mature workers' successful
integration into the labour force. CEDEC's Mature Workers Action
Committee will present recommendations to employment service agencies,
community organizations and businesses to encourage the hiring
practices of local businesses to be more inclusive.
CEDEC is working in partnership with Human Resources and Skills
Development Canada, Agence Ometz, the Black Community Resource Centre,
La Passerelle, ERS Youth Development and John Abbott College for this
needs assessment. CEDEC's Mature Workers' Action Committee aims to help
mature workers integrate into the labour market.
If you or someone you know is an English speaker over 45 years of age
seeking employment, we invite your participation in this survey. Please
visit http://www.cedec.ca/survey/mwi to complete this short survey before March 7. For further information
or technical assistance filling out the survey, please contact Nina Kim
at firstname.lastname@example.org or 514-903-3753, ext. 226.
In communities across Quebec, CEDEC shares its experience in planning
and developing partnerships with the aim to strengthen local economies
and employability of the English-speaking and broader community. For
