Quebec invited 502 immigration candidates to apply for permanent selection on August 19.
The Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’Intégration (MIFI) issued invitations under the Quebec Regular Skilled Worker Program (QSWP).
An EOI is a pre-application screening process. It allows Quebec to select from those who are interested in immigrating to the province, and invite them to submit their application.
This draw comes just one week after Quebec held its biggest Arrima draw of the year.
Invitations are issued according to the needs of Quebec’s labour market. In this draw, Quebec invited those who have a score of at least 548. Their occupation must also be on the list of targeted occupations. These occupations, as well as their corresponding National Occupational Classification (NOC) code, are listed below:
This draw is Quebec’s seventh of the year. A total of 1,562 candidates have now been invited to apply for permanent selection by the province.
Quebec’s immigration programs are managed by the province and are distinct from Canada’s federal programs.
However, it is up to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to make the final decision on immigration applications.
The QSWP is for skilled workers who are more likely to establish themselves economically in the province. The program is popular among skilled workers and international graduates.
If you wish to settle in Quebec, you will be assessed under a different system than applicants who want to settle somewhere else in Canada.
Candidates who are invited to apply for permanent selection must do so within six months, starting on the date you submitted all the required information to process your application. This includes all forms and documents.
If successful, you will get a Certificat de sélection du Québec (CSQ or Quebec Selection Certificate). You can then use this document to apply for permanent residence to the Canadian federal government.
If you received an invitation to apply for a Quebec Selection Certificate, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn about the next steps regarding your application.
