As many as 5000 applications will be accepted for the popular Canadian immigration program.
The government of Quebec declared that its Quebec Skilled Worker program (QSWP) will accept 5,000 new applications as of August 16, 2016. The admission period may stay open until August 22, however, the intake cap is expected to be reached before the given date.
Amid the up and coming admission period, applicants with a current account on Mon projet Québec will have the chance to present their completed application profiles. It is currently possible to make a new account on Mon projet Québec in order to be able to present an application profile in the up and coming intake period. In addition, the MIDI has affirmed that potential candidates will, in any case, have the capacity to create an account up until August 16, in order to have the chance to submit an application in the up and coming admission period.
The last admission period opened at 8:30 a.m. Montreal time on June 13, 2016, with a limit of 5,000 applications that filled within hours in the wake of opening. It is expected that the admission period starting August 16 will again be brief. The admission time of June 13 was confined to around 41,000 candidates who had already made an account in January.
As of January 2016, all hopefuls wishing to present an application to the QSWP for a for a Quebec Selection Certificate/certificat de sélection du Québec (CSQ) must do as such online through the online admission intake management system Mon projet Québec. With a CSQ, candidates may then apply to the federal government for Canadian permanent residence.
Changes expected to take place to the QSWP in 2017- The forthcoming intake period from August 16 to 22 might be the last in 2016 for the QSWP. Quebec’s Minister for Immigration, Kathleen Weil, is driving efforts to move the province’s well known economic immigration program towards the model used all throughout Canada. Proposed enactment will make an immigration program like that of the Express Entry system, in which hopefuls present an Expression of Interest and anticipate an Invitation to Apply in view of their accreditations.
How Does the QSWP work?
The QSWP is a point-based immigration program, whereby points could be awarded for an individual’s zone of training, work experience, age, language capacity, earlier association with Quebec (through visits or family), the human capital factors of the candidate’s spouse or common-law partner and regardless of whether the candidate has an approved employment offer in Quebec. In the event that an individual fulfills the base point requirement for these factors, he or she may then gain extra points for any accompanying kids and verification of financial self-sufficiency.
Overall, Quebec grants a huge number of points for individuals ‘area of training’ specifically occupations in engineering, health care, IT, natural sciences, business, and trades are main focuses under the QSWP.
Also note that candidates that are in one of the following situations are not subjected to the limit and may submit an application for a CSQ (Quebec Selection Certificate/ certificat de selection du Quebec) outside the above-mentioned intake periods; the applicant has enclosed a validated offer with the application for a selection certificate submitted under the QSWP or the applicant is a temporary resident in Quebec and eligible to submit an application for a CSQ.
