Presentation of the Emploi Nexus program


Emploi Nexus is a program put forward by the Service du développement économique (economic development department). It offers a comprehensive range of consulting services to Montréal-based businesses facing challenges related to recruitment.

By promoting the hiring of immigrant professionals, the Ville de Montréal contributes to the growth of companies across its territory and the socio-economic integration of its citizens of immigrant origin.


The Emploi Nexus program was created in 2011 with financing from the Défi Montréal program put forward by the Ministère de l’Immigration et des Communautés culturelles and the Ville de Montréal.
