The Intercultural city aims at building its policies and identity on the explicit acknowledgement that diversity can be a resource for the development of the society.

The first step is the adoption (and implementation) of strategies that facilitate positive intercultural encounters and exchanges, and promote equal and active participation of residents and communities in the development of the city, thus responding to the needs of a diverse population. The Intercultural integration policy model is based on extensive research evidence, on a range of international legal instruments, and on the collective input of the cities member of the Intercultural Cities programme that share their good practice examples on how to better manage diversity, address possible conflicts, and benefit from the diversity advantage.

This section offers examples of intercultural approaches that facilitate the development and implementation of intercultural strategies.

Sherbrooke is committed to promoting diversity in employment, namely through recruitment actions to attract candidates from visible and ethnic minorities. Initiatives implemented by the city include :

  • Transmission of job offers to the organisations responsible for assisting immigrants in their job search.
  • Posting job offers on the Emploi-Québec website.
  • Mentioning in job offers that the city of Sherbrooke is subject to the Equal Access to Employment Act and encourages target groups to submit their applications.
  • Participation in all editions of the Diversity and Employment Fair.
  • Participation in career days organised by the Université de Sherbrooke and the Cégep de Sherbrooke.
  • Participation in the Student Job Fair - Opération Emploi.
  • Information sessions on the city of Sherbrooke's recruitment process, job requirements and featured jobs.
  • Adding a Diversity [French only] section to the City's Employment page.

In addition, the "J'adopte l'Estrie" project aims to promote the integration of international students into the Estrie job market. In fact, the aim of this project is to ensure that international students (but not only) can put down roots in the Estrie and Sherbrooke area. Through all sorts of measures and actions, the project encourages these students to take ownership of their new living environment.
