Quebec immigration has started accepting applications for its pilot program aimed at workers in artificial intelligence, information technology and visual effects.

The five-year pilot will see 550 candidates per year selected for Quebec immigration. Candidates can come directly from a foreign country, or already be in Quebec as a temporary foreign worker.

The initial application window runs from April 22 to October 31, 2021.

This is the third Quebec pilot program to open to applications recently, after those for orderlies and food production workers.

"With the launch of this new pilot program, our government wants to equip companies to recruit the best talent internationally, to support and accelerate innovation in new technologies," said Quebec Immigration Minister Nadine Girault.

"More than ever, Quebec's economic recovery needs innovative and promising tools for wealth creation."
