The Saint-Sauveur Valley Chamber of Commerce and Tourism regularly works in close collaboration with local organizations that seek to improve employment in the region.
One of those organizations is the Carrefour Jeunesse-Emploi des Pays-d'en-Haut, as part of a joint Equity Program. Other partners in this program include PREL and the Commission scolaire des Laurentides.
The Equity Program is aimed at employers who hire students who wish to continue their studies while working. The program aims to sensitize employers about young people who wish to continue going to school, and offering the tools necessary to encourage these young employees.
Close to 80 local businesses are part of this program, and are now considered “first-choice employers”.
