The Quebec Skilled Worker immigration program is for the skilled foreign applicants who wish to reside in Montreal or any other area within the province of Quebec. The selection criteria for this provincially regulated program are different from the federally regulated immigration programs.
This program is also known as the ‘Regular Skilled Worker Program’ and is administered by the Government of Quebec. Recently a new Expression of Interest System has been introduced by the immigration ministry of Quebec. Also known as the Déclaration d’intérêt system, this program has been introduced to simplify the immigration process.
This program is intermittently opened for new applications. Few persons can apply to this program at any time:
- Cap-exempted applicants with a MIDI validated employment offer
- Temporary residents of Quebec eligible to apply for a CSQ
