Quebec Skilled Worker Program - ICP Immigration Inc.

 

The Quebec Skilled Worker Program is one of the most attractive Canadian immigration programs. It considers and accepts applicants with a wide range of educational backgrounds and the required settlement funds are much lower than the Federal Skilled Worker Program. Also, your application may be eligible for fast-track processing if you have a degree and work experience in an area that is in high demand in Quebec.

In August 2018, new rules came into effect regarding the intake and processing of applications for permanent selection. These rules pertain to applications submitted by economic immigration candidates.  
Persons who want to immigrate to Québec under the Skilled Worker Program can submit a declaration of interest through the Arrima system (declaration of interest system). Intake of immigration applications for this program will now be carried out through this system. From now on, only candidates invited by the Minister can submit an application for permanent selection.

Applicants who desire to immigrate to Quebec under Quebec Skilled worker program must complete an Expression of Interest in order to enter the selection pool. Quebec will select qualified applicants through the selection pool and selected applicants will receive an invitation to apply for CSQ. The invitation will provide them a 90 days limited time to respond and apply for CSQ.

The following selection factors are taken into account:

  • your education
  • your work experience
  • your age
  • your knowledge of French and English
  • your stays in Quebec and family relationship with a Quebec resident
  • characteristics regarding your spouse, if applicable
  • the number of children under the age of 22 who will be accompanying you to Quebec
  • your capacity for financial self-sufficiency
