Discrimination à l’embauche des candidates d’origine maghrébine dans la région de la Capitale-Nationale*

Résumé court: 

Using a resume mailing experiment carried out in Quebec City, this paper seeks to identify whether – with identical resumes – “Samira Benounis” would get fewer job interviews than “Valérie Tremblay”. Our results show that, all else equal, when the candidate’s name is of North African rather than of Quebec origin, the probability of the candidate getting a job interview decreases by 11%. This suggests hiring discrimination against job seekers of North African origin in the Quebec City region, in the context of an increasingly important demographic role for immigration in Quebec.
