    Quebec Skilled Worker Program - A Guide!

    The Quebec Skilled Worker Program may allow foreign employees who want to become permanent residents in the Canadian province of Quebec to immigrate there.

    In contrast to the skilled worker programs run by the Canadian government, the Quebec Skilled Worker Program is a points-based initiative. Successful candidates are not required to have a job offer in order to travel to Quebec with their families.

    Quebec has no cap. Applications for skilled labor

    People who have a verified employment offer in Quebec, as well as temporary residents who are qualified to apply for a CSQ, are able to do so at any time, outside of the normal intake window.

    Additionally, submitting an application through the Quebec Experience Program (PEQ) may be available, with a quicker visa processing timeline at the CSQ application step.

    Quebec's criteria for skilled workers

    Comparatively complex to numerous other Canadian immigration schemes is the Quebec Skilled Worker Program. All candidates must meet two point levels in order to be deemed qualified, with varying eligibility requirements for single applicants compared to applicants who have a spouse or common-law partner joining them.

    All candidates for permanent residency through Quebec immigration programs must demonstrate their familiarity with Quebec values as of January 1, 2020. You can achieve this by passing an examination on Quebec values or finishing a course on Quebec values.

    Let’s start with applicants who are single.

      Those who have a spouse or common - law partner

      For the first barrier, applicants who are traveling with a spouse or common-law partner must amass 52 points. These candidates can additionally receive up to 17 credits for the spouse’s or partner’s considerations, in supplementary to the first set of criteria mentioned above, even though this may look like a larger barrier and thus appear to be more challenging.

      Therefore, candidates with an accompanying spouse or common-law partner must get at least 52 points out of 116, as opposed to applicants who are alone, who must obtain at least 43 points out of a potential 99 to pass the initial barrier.
