Immigrate to Canada under Professional and Skilled Worker Program
Successful applicants of the Skilled Worker Immigration programs will receive a permanent resident visa, allowing the applicant to immigrate to Canada with his or her family.
As a skilled professional, you have several options to consider. For example, you can either apply under Canada's Federal Skilled Worker Class. In addition, if you know in which province or territory you plan to reside, you may be able to submit an application through one of the provincial nominee programs.
Quebec Skilled Worker: Applicants who plan to immigrate to the province of Quebec may be eligible to submit an application through this program.
Quebec has a special agreement with the Government of Canada on immigration. The province has its own rules for choosing immigrants who will adapt well to living there.
To apply as a skilled worker in Quebec, you must apply to:
the Quebec government for a Certificat de sélection du Québec (CSQ);
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to become a permanent resident of Canada (once you’re approved by Quebec);
Québec bases its selection on a grid of factors for which points are awarded, for example, your education, occupational skills, language knowledge, and age. Whether or not you have children is also taken into account.
As part of the process, you’ll need to have a medical exam and get police certificates.
Federal Skilled Worker: This program is for individuals with certain work experience who intend to reside in any province or territory outside of the province of Quebec.
Express Entry is used to manage applications for permanent residence under these federal economic immigration programs:
Provinces and territories can also recruit candidates from the Express Entry system through their Provincial Nominee Programs to meet local labor market needs.
Provincial Nominee Programs: Most provinces and territories have created their own skilled worker programs for those intending to live and work in their particular province or territory. These are fast-track Canadian immigration programs that allow candidates to receive a provincial nomination certificate. In most cases, a nomination certificate will allow candidates to immigrate more quickly than through other Canadian immigration programs.
Most provinces and territories in Canada can nominate immigrants through the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP). These immigrants must have the skills, education, and work experience to contribute to the economy of that province or territory, and must want to live there.
The province of Quebec does not have a PNP.
