Skilled Workers looking to move to the province of Québec must apply through the Québec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP) rather than through the Express Entry system. As of 2016, applications can be submitted online through the website “Mon Projet Québec”.
The Québec Skilled Worker Program has its own selection grid, distinct from the Federal Skilled Worker Program. The Québec program gives much more importance to the language of French, the official language of Québec, although it is not a prerequisite for eligibility.
Please note that the Québec Skilled Worker Program is currently closed and is not accepting new applications at the moment. The QSWP is expected to reopen in 2017 and will likely undergo a substantial reform before it reopens.
We will keep our customers updated with any new development regarding these changes.
