2019-11-15 – Quebec's immigration ministry has announced the restoration of the pre-November 1 requirements for the Quebec Experience Program (PEQ).

As of November 14, candidates applying to the PEQ will be assessed based on the criteria that existed before the November 1 changes were announced by Immigration Minister Simon Jolin-Barrette.

Jolin-Barrette has since suspended the changes following an outcry from stakeholders, including candidates and employers.

The November 1 changes introduced areas of training list for the graduate stream of the PEQ, and a list of targeted National Occupational Classification codes for the temporary worker stream.

Jolin-Barrette says he will consult stakeholders before revising both the areas of training and targeted NOC codes list.
