Quebec Skilled Worker Program candidates who receive an invitation to apply for a Quebec Selection Certificate will now only have 60 calendar days to file a complete application, the province’s government announced June 26.  

The new deadline cuts 30 days from the previous deadline of 90 days. 

A similar reduction was introduced exactly one year ago for the federal government’s Express Entry system.

The shortened application deadline was one of three measures announced by the Government of Quebec. 

The government also announced that Expressions of Interest (EOIs) currently in the Quebec Skilled Worker Program‘s bank of candidates will remain valid for an extra six months.

The third measure will see the EOIs of candidates who decline an invitation to apply for a Quebec Selection Certificate (Certificat de sélection du Quebec, or CSQ) remain in the bank of candidates for their full validity period.

The Government of Quebec said all three measures announced June 26 take effect immediately.
