The first rapid, paid construction training courses, with weekly support of $750, began earlier this month. Other training, however, due to strikes, began “a little later,” admitted Mr. Legault.

The reform of the law governing the construction industry, which will soon be tabled by the Minister of Labor, Jean Boulet, will include a revision of the mission of the Quebec Construction Commission.

The legislative document, which was to be tabled this fall, will finally be tabled next week, when work resumes in the National Assembly, he said.

Announced on May 1, 2023, the bill will notably affect the versatility of certain professions through the sharing of tasks, the reduction in the number of working hours training for certain trades, productivity – which Quebec wants to increase – and interregional mobility of workers.

It will also make it possible to rethink the mission of the Commission de la construction du Québec (CCQ), Jean Boulet revealed for the first time Thursday morning in a press scrum.

The minister will also take advantage of his reform to implement measures aimed at increasing the representation of women, immigrants, people with disabilities, Aboriginal people and visible minorities in the industry. The CCQ already has programs in this area.
