Operation and eligibility criteria

The course is spread over 18 months at a rate of 3 days/week in studies and 2 days/week in educational daycare. Financial compensation is paid to employers to pay educators during study hours.

Eligible educational childcare services are:

- Early childhood centers (CPE)

- Subsidized and non-subsidized day care centers which hold a permit issued by the Ministère de la Famille.

The stages of the Employer Program

1. Evaluate your skilled labor needs using the GPMO tool found in the employer kit.*

2. Create your employer space on the portal.

3. Then you can;

  • register your unqualified educators and/or educators in the Program;


  • publish your job offers which will be visible to many candidates registered on the platform.

4. Receive applications on your job offers by email and proceed with your recruitment.

The Program will come back to you before the end of the session applications to obtain the information about the candidates selected and send their file to the CEGEP of their choice. You will have to provide an employment offer (a model is available in employer kit*)

*The tools in the employer kit are offered to support the educational childcare environment. It is not mandatory to use them for employer registration.

The forms to post job offers and candidacies for the Fall 2021 session are no longer available.

Recruitment for the Winter 2022 session will begin soon.
