The largest province of Canada is the Quebec province. Located in the East of Canada, Quebec is the second most populous province. Additionally, it is also the only Francophone province. It has some of the most stylish and luxurious cities with some of the most wonderful places in the world, with Montreal being one of them.
Not forgetting the Quebec City, the oldest fortified city in the Americas where you can stroll on the beautiful greens of the Plains of Abraham, site of the battle that saw France begin its long loss of territory in the New World.
This province invites immigrants from all around the world with its arms wide open and an aim of individualistic progress. Calling for skilled professionals, Canada has introduced the Quebec Skilled Worker Programme. If you are a trained professional looking to reside in the nation, this programme is ideal for you. It is especially designed for those who want to take their quality of life a notch higher and grow their economy.
The province caters to many industries and offers a gamut of opportunities for all immigrants. Some of the most productive industries that contribute commendably towards the province’s economy are:
1) Aerospace Industry
2) Information Technology
4) Health Industry
9) Optics and Photonics
Quebec administers its own immigration programmes with selection criteria that are distinct and more predictable from those of federal and other provincial immigration programmes. While providing lucrative job opportunities and a promising opulent lifestyle, this programme has strict selection criteria.
Foreign nationals wishing to settle permanently in Quebec must undergo a two-step immigration process which is listed as follows:
- They must be selected by the Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Diversité et de l’Inclusion (MIDI), Quebec’s immigration authority. Selected applicants will receive a Quebec Certificat de Sélection (CSQ).
- An approved CSQ holder must file an application with Canadian federal immigration authorities. The federal government’s role in evaluating a Quebec application for Permanent Resident Canada (PR) is mainly limited to issues of health and criminality.
Accepting around 41,000 applicants this province stands with pride, inviting many more this year. Individuals showing the talent and experience level, which meets the demands of the Canadian economy, are selected. Besides having work experience and having a paid job, if one knows the French language, they would definitely have better chances as an applicant. One must have the complete intention to live in Quebec and fruitfully use his abilities to contribute towards its economy.
A basic diploma is also a requirement that one should possess while applying for the Quebec Skilled Worker Programme. The province will also be making sure that all applicants have a secure finance and possess independent funds that can sufficiently support them in the initial days.
