Comments by employers

Our employees come from more than a dozen different countries. We’ve been offering them French courses since 2004, in cooperation with the Ministère. These courses have resulted in a better understanding of our high-tech operations—which rely heavily on French—and good communication among our staff. They’ve also helped our employees integrate into Québec society.

Daniel Lapierre
Director of Human Resources
Avensys inc.

We place as much importance on skill recognition as we do on the need to use French at our company. We’ve been offering our employees French courses since 2006 and they greatly appreciate the consideration. These courses have produced real results, enabling participants to improve communication, increase productivity, and effectively integrate into our work environment and Québec society.
