Immigrating to Quebec under the selected skilled workers category

Quebec Skilled Worker / Professional applicants intending to reside in Montreal or another city in the Province of Quebec are selected based upon a different set of criteria than applicants who wish to settle elsewhere in Canada. If you want to imigrate to Quebec as a skilled worker, you must first follow a separate selection process before your application is finalised by Citizenship and Immigration Canada.

Quebec is a province in east-central Canada. It is the only Canadian province with a predominantly French-speaking population and the only one whose sole official language is French at the provincial level. Quebec is Canada's largest province by area and the second most populous province, after Ontario.

To learn about immigrating to Quebec and their immigrating requirement visit the Quebec's immigration website.

If you speak French, you should know that there are plenty of French-speaking communities outside Quebec that are also excited about welcoming you. You can visit, study, work temporarily or settle permanently in one of these communities.Canada seeks to attract more French speakers to help Francophone minority communities prosper. If one of these places is right for you, find out whether you qualify under one of the immigrating categories on the left side of this page. You may also complete the free online evaluation form on our website.

Quebec-selected skilled workers: Who can apply

Quebec-selected skilled workers must apply in two stages.

You must first apply to the Quebec government for a certificate of selection. This is the official document that shows that the Government of Quebec has accepted you to that province. Visit the website of the Quebec ministry that handles immigration for more information on how to obtain a certificate.

After you have been selected by Quebec, you have to make a separate application to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) for permanent residence.

This is the second and final stage. Here, you will have to pass a medical examination, security and criminal checks. CIC conducts these checks for all immigrants, wherever they intend to move in Canada. You must also show that you have enough money to support yourself and your family after you arrive in Canada.
