Big news, there is an important Quebec Skilled Worker Program announcement to share, that was made on July 19! The province of Quebec will take up to 5000 new applications starting in less than a month, on August 16 to August 22. But get your application in early, because they are sure to reach the cap well before August 22. The second important note in this Quebec Skilled Worker Program announcement is that another intake period will take place in a few weeks. It’s comforting to know that there still are some first-come, first-serve immigration programs in Canada, since many of these have been replaced with the Expression of Interest Systems.
The Quebec Skilled Worker Program Announcement and how to proceed
How do you get started? You need a Quebec Selection Certificate, and you do this through the online intake management system called Mon Projet Quebec. Once you have the Quebec Selection Certificate, you can then apply to the federal government for permanent residence. But you need to go through the Mon Projet Quebec system first. So get busy! You enter all the info online, and you need to get it ready before August 16, per the Quebec Skilled Worker Program Announcement. You’ll need your personal information, civil status, work history, education history, family history and previous visits to Quebec ready to enter in the system.
