My Story: Diane Duquette

I was on welfare for a long time, but had always hoped to return to work. I began looking but had no success due to my age and prolonged inactivity. It was through my agent at Emploi-Québec that I heard about Goodwill Renaissance Montreal in Quebec.

My training as a sales clerk-sorter-cashier went very well. I was part of a great team which was very encouraging and made me feel like returning to the job market. I never thought that I could handle the cash register, but with everyone’s support, I surprised even myself! I am proud to have succeeded.

My passage at Goodwill Renaissance Montreal really saved me because I was depressed and discouraged. My life changed! Today, I have moved to Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu where I found a job as a cashier at Restaurant Patio Vidal. Now I can spoil my daughter, find a better situation and get ahead in life.
