Survey to Explore Unemployment Among Montreal's Mature English-speaking Workers

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 to complete this short survey before March 7. For further information or technical assistance filling out the survey, please contact Nina Kim at 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 more information, please visit
