Are you a skilled worker and interested in immigration to Quebec under the well-known Quebec Skilled Worker Programme (QSWP)? If yes, this news report is especially for you!
In a rather important development, the administration of the Canadian province of Quebec has, reportedly, brought its website up to date and, for the first time, made public its plan to revive the QSWP for overseas movement to Canada in the summer of this year.
The Ministère de l'Immigration, de la Diversité et de l'Inclusion (MIDI), the administration ministry running immigration to Quebec has proclaimed that aspirants--who have generated an account under the Mon projet Québec application management structure, but who are not successful in presenting a petition inside the quota of 2,800 spaces for the upcoming application intake time-frame--will have their accounts kept for the subsequent intake time-frame.
The same will allegedly enable possible candidates to have not less than one more chance to present a petition this year. It was earlier not known whether or not the QSWP would become available once more post the upcoming application intake period, which continues between February 16, 2016 and March 31, 2016.
Now the update in detail!
- Until February 15, 2016, at 1:30 p.m. (Montréal time), aspirants with a Mon projet Québec account can use it to duly complete the application form for a Quebec Selection Certificate/certificat de selection du Québec (CSQ) online.
- As of February 16, 2016, at 8:30 a.m. (Montréal time), every aspirant who is armed with a Mon projet Québec account and who has suitably completed their application will afterwards be in a position to present it by pushing the submission button. After the application is presented, a message of confirmation will come into view on the screen. The initial 2,800 petitions obtained will be suitably processed. Applicants whose petitions get included in this figure will get a message asking them to shell-out the needed charges, online or via mail, inside 30 days. March 31, 2016 will be the last date for application intake.
- Every aspirant will be notified of the position of their application inside 90 days. Aspirants, whose petitions will not be duly processed, will not have any charges to shell-out even while their petitions will be kept aside for the subsequent intake period, planned for summer 2016. Aspirants, whose petitions were not duly processed, will be in a position to go back to their account at any given time to bring up to date their form with a view to put forward the same for the period of the next intake period.
Important: applicants who possess a job offer fittingly authenticated by the MIDI, and also impermanent residents of Québec who are qualified to put forward a petition for the CSQ, can present a petition at any given time, except between January 25 and February 17, this year.
It will all over again be possible to generate an online account as of February 18, this year.
