In the context of the scarcity of labor in the IT sector, the Government of Quebec created PRATIC, the Program for requalification and support in information and communication technologies. PRATIC participants could see their entire college program paid for, and benefit from financial assistance of $650 per week, for the entire duration of their training. A scholarship of $1,950 will also be given to them when they successfully complete their training.
This program is for people that are currently unemployed and who have not been in full-time studies in the last 12 months.
You must first meet with an employment assistance officer at your local Services Québec office to assess your eligibility.
Eligible persons will be able to follow the twelve-month training program followed by an industry-based internship.
