To make up for the scarcity of resources in the field of care for the elderly and the vulnerable, the Government of Québec is unveiling the new accelerated program support for assistance care in health facilities. Nearly 10,000 long-term care facility attendant positions are available.
The new training program will be offered in accelerated format over a period of three months, for a total of 375 hours. It will lead to an attestation of professional studies (AEP).
Students will receive a scholarship equivalent to $ 760 per week during their training. They will then be assured of employment upon obtaining their certificate, with a full-time annual salary of $ 49,000 which includes the premiums resulting from the decree relating to the state of health emergency.
