The Legalt government estimates that by next September, at least 40% of the 5,000 civilian job transfers promised will be completed from headquarters to Quebec.
Since the last election, approximately 1,300 public service seats have been transferred from Quebec and Montreal.
By Sept. 30, 700 additional transfers will be made to a total of 2,000 seats, announced Premier Franకోois Legalt, who traveled to Manivaki on Monday with Treasury Board Chairperson Sonia Label to explain its strategy for “regionalization”. Public administration.
“I believe strong Quebec needs strong territories,” Trump said, recalling that during the last election campaign, he pledged to convert 5,000 of the 10 civil servant seats into regions.
This was a request from the Quebec Federation of Municipalities (FQM) and the Union of Quebec Municipalities (UMQ), to which all parties responded positively. The two major municipalities also welcomed the fulfillment of this commitment on Friday.
“This is another promise, Mr. Legalt welcomed. (…) This gives us extra leverage to create quality jobs in much needed areas. It encourages our youth to stay in the area.
15 Partnership Offices
Most jobs – especially professional positions – are transferred after retirement. “We are not forcing anyone to move, but the post has been moved,” the CAQ leader summed up, not excluding those who want to relocate to the area on a voluntary basis.
To achieve its goal, Quebec will move forward with the establishment of fifteen partner government offices bringing together various sectors such as wildlife, tourism, environment or housing.
They are the RCMs with the highest devolution index, namely: Maten, Alma, La Malby, Shavinigan, Lock-Megantic, Manivaki, La Sare, By-Camou, Gaspe, New Richmond, Theftford Mines, Radon, Riviere-Rouge, Sorrel-Tracy and Victoriaville.
Although telework use is possible in the “hybrid” formula, those who want to replace the transferred locations must settle near their workplace.
“If you want a job you have to go to the gas station,” Minister Label said by example.
“Thanks to these jobs, areas away from major centers can welcome new workers, but also families,” the Treasury board chairman argued.
“Pop window” according to SFPQ
Without sharing the same enthusiasm, Syndicate de la Function Public at Parapలిక్bique du Quebec (SFPQ) believed that the plan unveiled by the government was nothing more than “window dressing” because 14 Services Quebec regional offices were closed last fall.
“If we currently have a shortage of weapons in the public service, whether in the regions or at major centers, it is because the Legal government has no heart to improve pay conditions,” commented SFPQ President General Christian Diegel.
