Quebec is the only province in Canada that does not have a unique Provincial Nominee Program. The remaining provinces and one territory have their respective PNPs, which are being utilized in order to meet the specific skill requirements of the provinces with foreign nationals. Canadian Provincial Nominee Programs are one of the speediest ways of obtaining Canadian Permanent Residence status.
But, the province of Quebec has its own immigration selection system tailored to choose eligible immigrants from different parts of the world. The province identifies the requirements pertaining to the immigration and accordingly nominates foreign nationals to meet those requirements as per the regulation or criteria it sets under the selection system.
For instance, if someone wishes to immigrate to Quebec as a skilled worker, then he/she has will be required to follow a certain tailored selection process, which is followed by the approval of the Citizenship and Immigration Canada. The Skilled Worker Program of Quebec is instrumental in selecting those foreign nationals who have the potential to become economically well-settled in the province.
When it comes to immigrating to Quebec, the eligibility criteria for applicants are little different from the ones that are required to meet in order to settle in other province of Canada. Upon meeting all the criteria, Skilled Worker Program’s applicants of the Quebec immigration selection system are provided with a Quebec Selection Certificate, which lets them to enter and settle in the province. In order to receive the certificate, all applicants are required to score minimum points of 49, based on a number of factors, such as;
