“I really like my work, I enjoy customer service. I am getting work experience in a pleasant environment which I am convinced will allow me to find stable employment.” 

Originally from Italy, Ada arrived in Quebec over forty years ago. All her life, she looked after the accounting for two garages which she owned with her husband. In 2010 she became seriously ill and had to sell the business she had continued to manage with her son after her husband’s death. After her convalescence, Ada went to Emploi-Québec, which recommended that she attend an information session at Renaissance. “The training at Renaissance helps me a lot, because it allows me to become familiar with the job market and helps me to develop confidence that I will be able to face it.” Ada hopes to find work in customer service in a clothing store.
