Our Mission With Specialized Employment
The Centre de placement spécialisé du Portage (CPSP) provides services to adults with criminal records of Outaouais looking to integrate or reintegrate the regular job market. Employers looking to hire staff are also provided with services (posting of their job offers on our bulletin boards, we can refer candidates to fulfil some positions, or act as mediator between them and the employees). The CPSP works collaboratively with Emploi-Québec. All our services are free, confidential and bilingual.
The CPSP exists since 1975 with the goal to provide a range of specialized services for the development of employability amongst adult offenders. It is therefore not mandatory to have a criminal record to benefit from our services. Having been involved with the criminal justice system and facing difficulties related to finding a job or going back to school are enough for us to help you.
The CPSP looks to promote adult offenders’ independence. After over 40 years in specialized interventions with clients with criminal records, the CPSP has become a key organism for activities and programs that allow for a better tracking and support of clients with their social and professional reintegration process.
