The Quebec government recently announced the long-awaited reopening of the Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP). Applications will be accepted from November 4, 2015 until March 31, 2016.
The QSWP is a point-based immigration program designed for candidates that are planning to reside in the province of Quebec, as opposed to other provinces and territories in Canada. Points are awarded in various areas: age, education, work experience, language proficiency and others, including criteria that are unique to Quebec (such as the stay in Quebec and the family connections category). A minimum score of 49 (57 if with a spouse/common-law partner) is required to qualify for the Quebec Selection Certificate (CSQ) which would enable candidates to apply for Canadian permanent resident visa.
The government of Quebec is allowing a maximum of 6,300 application to be processed during the two application periods. The first period will run from November 4 until December 15 of this year, with the government of Quebec accepting up to 3,500 print applications only. The online application period (up to 2,800 applications) will be open from January 18 to March 31, 2016.
Here are some of the benefits of applying through the QSWP program:
