Informations and Measures Related to COVID-19

Given the magnitude of the COVID-19 pandemic in the world and its impact on public health and the economy, Québec International has put in place, since the beginning of March 2020, various preventive measures designed to help maintain its business support services while also limiting the risk of spreading the virus. Considering the current developments and the new measures recommended by the authorities, our organization will be operating primarily with remote working, until further notice.

Our team remains available to support businesses and workers under these circumstances. Various activities and programs have been implemented or modified to meet the new needs that arose due to the pandemic. Furthermore, in order to provide businesses and workers with the most relevant information, our team is monitoring the situation very closely, especially in regard to measures announced by the government in support of businesses and workers.

This section includes a lot of information about the current measures. Most of this information is only available in French. To receive assistance in English, you may contact our team to discuss your specific circumstances and learn more about the current context and the applicable measures.
