The province’s government site has some great material that will help you draw up your plan of action and guide as you navigate through all your options.

The labour market in Québec has a number of distinct characteristics. Even if you were chosen largely on the basis of your diplomas and skills, you must make every effort to find a suitable job as soon as possible. This is why we advise you to gather as much information as possible and, to take steps to facilitate your professional integration before departing for Québec.

Quebec’s largest city, Montreal, has quite a booming job market, with opportunities that stretch across a number of industries.
