Earlier, Quebec has its application intake based on first come, first served pattern, however, recently, the provincial government has decided to make changes in the existing system. Now the applicants will get ample time to submit their application and selection process will start, once all applications have been collected. Let’s find more about the recent Quebec Immigration Rule changes.
The Quebec government has launched new Expression of Interest (EOI) system for Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP) with effect from August 2, 2018. This new EOI system is quite similar to federal express entry system, wherein the applicant first needs to create the profile and submit Expression of Interest on the online system and then the concerned authorities check the individual profiles and invite the selected applicants to submit a complete application.
In case, of QSWP, the province will evaluate the submitted profile in the system and subsequently, invite the candidates to apply for Quebec Selection Certificate (CSQ). The applications will be assessed and selected applicants will get the CSQ, which will enable them to apply for Canadian permanent residency directly to IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada).
