Transfer of civil servants to the regions: a first shared office will open in Gaspésie this summer


A first shared government office will soon see the light of day in Gaspésie in connection with the transfer of public service positions to the regions, while nearly 3,400 positions have been relocated so far.

Quebec wants to transfer 5,000 public service jobs to the regions by 2028.

The Public Administration Employment Regionalization Plan also includes the creation of shared government offices to accommodate transferred personnel, if necessary. A total of fifteen offices will be created.

According to the latest information available, the first shared government office will open this summer in New Richmond, in Gaspésie. This is the schedule targeted by the Société québécoise des infrastructures and the Secretariat of the Conseil du trésor.

As for the other 14 installations, there is no timetable available.

The deployment plan for these shared government offices is still in progress.

An update on workspace needs was done at the beginning of the year. The results are currently being analyzed and it is too early to reveal the data, said the Société québécoise des infrastructures, in an email sent to TVA Nouvelles.

In Eastern Quebec, in addition to New Richmond, shared government offices will also be created in Baie-Comeau, Matane and Gaspé.

To date and according to the most recent data as of January 31, 3,396 public administration jobs have already been regionalized since October 2018 in the province.

In addition, 322 positions were transferred to Bas-Saint-Laurent. In Gaspésie-Îles-de-la-Madeleine, we are talking about 124 jobs. On the North Shore, the number of positions is 31.

In September 2022, during the last reporting, we were talking about 2,773 transfers made in total in the province.
