The Quebec government has revealed important details under its
popular skilled worker immigration program that is set
to reopen on or before October 1st 2015. It plans to receive
6300 new applications during the 2015-2016 period.
The Quebec program features more than 75 eligible occupations and areas of training that will
enable applicants to qualify for a Quebec Certificate of Selection
(CSQ), without a job offer.
Unlike the federal Express Entry immigration system or programs offered
by other provinces under Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP), Quebec remains the
only program in Canada where skilled worker applicants can predict
their chances for admission on the basis of their proven
qualifications. Applicants, who reach a passing score under the
Quebec system, receive a CSQ which enables them to qualify for
Canadian permanent residence.
A Quebec skilled worker is foreign national who intends to
settle in Quebec to hold employment the foreign national is likely
able to hold. This determination is made using a point system which
evaluates the candidate's area of training, education,
experience, age, language, qualifications of a partner or spouse,
offer of employment (which is not required), children and
Applicants in a wide range of areas including Management and
Financial Services, Engineering and Information Technology and
Health Care, have the best chances to succeed under the
Quebec Skilled Worker program.
