Generally, the beginning of the year brings new goals and challenges we set. For inspiration when choosing changes or improvements to make, read our survey of the employment prospects in our sector, property and casualty insurance.

The first thing to note is that when we talk about the property and casualty insurance industry in Québec, we are talking about:

  • 1,300 employers
  • 24,000 direct jobs
