Thanks to its rich cultural heritage and French Language, Quebec boasts of an exclusive position on the horizon of Canadian immigration. The Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP) is a popular option among individuals aspiring to immigrate permanently to the province.
Several factors can influence a candidate’s selection under the Quebec Skilled Worker Program, like language skills, work experience, and probable links with the province. An experienced immigration consultant can help you with the assessment and application process of the QSWP.
Eligible foreign candidates can leverage the Quebec Skilled Worker Program to settle in the province by submitting the Expression of Interest profile to the exclusive Arrima Portal. Candidates with a valid job offer and work experience in a specific occupation have a better scope to qualify for QSWP.
The Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’Intégration (MIFI) periodically sends invitation to the candidates from the pool of applicants.
The new system of Expression of Interest replaces the previous First-Come-First-Serve selection method. There were considerable backlogs in the older selection process resulting in wait times of up to several years. The new Expression of Interest selection system assigns equal importance to all applicants.
