As of November 14, 2019, the government has restored the Quebec Experience Program (PEQ) to the selection criteria that prevailed before November 1, 2019.

The changes that came into effect on November 1, 2019 were focused on limiting the access to the PEQ, primarily to students and temporary foreign workers.  The suspension now lifts these restrictions for an undefined period of time until the Quebec government consults with respective organizations to update the occupation list per demand.

Employers who are affected are encouraged to contact an immigration specialist.
