Immigrating to Quebec as a Skilled Worker
The Quebec government and the Government of Canada have an agreement
that allows Quebec to select immigrants who best meet its immigration
needs. Under the Canada-Quebec Accord on Immigration, Quebec is able to
establish its own immigration requirements and select immigrants who will
adapt well to living in Quebec.
To come to Canada as a Quebec Skilled Worker, you must first apply to
the Quebec government for a Certificat de selection du Québec.
Visit the Quebec Immigration Web site for more information.
Note: After you have been selected by Quebec, you have to make a
separate application to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) for
permanent residence. A CIC officer will assess your application based on
Canadian immigration regulations.
Quebec Skilled Workers are not assessed on the six selection
factors of the Federal Skilled Workers Program.
