At the heart of the organization, five values guide CGE employees on a daily basis in their work and in their relationships with participants.

Le Centre Génération Emploi croit en des relations harmonieuses entre les personnes, motivées par le respect de soi et des autres. Nous valorisons l’ouverture, la solidarité, l’entraide et le respect des particularités et des différences.

We offer a welcoming and inclusive place, which is open to diversity in all its forms.



A Story Marked by Success

The CGE was founded in 1983 under the name Génération Travail – YMCA. At that time, its mission was the socioeconomic integration of young people who were severely disadvantaged in terms of employment.

In July 1989, Génération Emploi expanded its offerings to include equal access to employment and job integration for members of ethnocultural communities and visible minorities, as well as for youth and women in Greater Montreal. In 1998, following its incorporation, the organization became known as the CGE.

Over the following decades, we have developed a unique expertise in career development and integration. We have been involved in our community, working in concert with other local, regional, and national organizations, which has allowed us to establish ourselves as a true reference in our field.

Today, the CGE welcomes, supports, and assists people, primarily from immigrant backgrounds, cultural communities, and racialized minorities, in their social, professional, and economic integration into Quebec society. As experts in career development, we also act as a welcoming and integration point for newcomers and as a partner for employers in search of labor.
