Quebec for Skilled Professionals
The Canadian province offers a fiscally profitable opportunity for qualified professionals through its well-known Quebec Skilled Migrant Program. It allows educated, professionally trained migrants to apply for a certificate of selection and then for Permanent Residence Visa within Canada.
It is a fairly lucrative opportunity for those who want to live in Quebec with their family or alone, and want a permanent residence permit instead of the mere work permit.
First of all, candidates are chosen for a certificate of selection by the Quebec Government. After the selection certificate has been availed, the candidate has to apply for a Canada Permanent Residence Visa. For this PR visa, medical records of the candidate and those accompanying him will be examined by the officials and some security checks will be performed.

The candidates applying for the scheme need to complete eligibility requirements:
Points Based Assessment
The Quebec Immigration selection system evaluates applications by giving those scores. A single candidate should get a minimum of 49 points and candidate with partner (common law partner/wife) should get 57 points.
Filing a Petition
Applications for Quebec Skilled Migrant Program can be filed with the help of Quebec immigration and visa agents, specialized in skilled migrant scheme. In India, many consultants are now providing such services and assistance. Candidates are advised to clear out their queries by seeking advisory services from immigration agents and then fill up the applications.
