Quebec Skilled Worker Program is designed for foreign workers who wish to live and work in Canada as permanent residents. The program allows skilled professionals to migrate to Quebec- the French province of Canada. The immigration pathway follows a point-based system to select workers capable of contributing to the provincial economy as key labor force members. Applicants must meet a minimum score on the point assessment grid to get selected.

Although Quebec is a French province, the program does not require applicants to show French language proficiency. The province welcomes foreigners with different levels of French language proficiency. However, having proficiency in French may lead to an increased score on the assessment grid.

To apply, you must declare your interest in immigrating to Québec permanently. If your profile successfully meets the criteria required for the program, you will receive an invitation to apply for permanent selection. An applicant can include their spouse, common-law partner, and any dependent children on their application while applying for the program.
