Labour market access
The government of Quebec adopted rules effective December 31, 2015, that ease the criteria under the Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP). The QSWP allows eligible applicants to immigrate to Canada after receiving a Quebec Selection Certificate / certificat de selection du Québec (CSQ) from the government of Quebec. The QSWP is a points-based program in which points are awarded for a candidate's area of training, work experience, language proficiency, age, prior relationship with Quebec, the human capital factors of the applicant's spouse or common-law partner (if applicable), and whether or not the applicant has a validated job offer from an employer in Quebec. The QSWP gives candidates the opportunity to be awarded a significant number of points through having earned a diploma, degree, or certificate in an area of training that meets Quebec labor market needs. Under the new rules, an applicant who obtained their diploma, degree or certificate more than five years ago is no longer required to show relevant work experience in the field in order to obtain these points.
