FAQ
Who are considered family for the purpose of Quebec immigration?

The following are considered family members in Quebec for the purpose of Quebec skilled immigration and applicable in the points calculator:

  • spouse
  • son/daughter
  • father/mother
  • brother/sister
  • grandfather/grandmother
  • citizens/permanent residents
What is the QSWP (Quebec Skilled Worker Program)?

The QSWP is an immigration program for those looking for economic immigration who have  the intention to settle in the province of Quebec. The MIDI (Ministry of Immigration, Diversity, and Inclusion) gets applications to the QSWP via the online platform called “Mon Projet Quebec”.

Applicants who find success applying under the QSWP are given a CSQ (Quebec Selection Certificate). It’s required prior to the candidate applying to the federal government of Canada for a PR visa.

What are the eligibility criteria for the QSWP?

The QSWP bases its operations on a points-based system. There’s a points threshold that candidates must meet for eligibility which is decided by a candidate’s family situation.

  • Single applicants must get 49 points on the points calculator.
  • Applicants including their common-law partner/spouse on their application must get 57 points on the points calculator.

Points are granted for work experience, education, language skills, family situation, and other criteria.

Who can be included in an application?

An applicant can include his/her common-law partner/spouse in the application for a skilled migration visa. Any dependent children aged 18 or younger may also be included. Canada even recognizes same-sex unions.

How is Quebec immigration different from Canada immigration?

Quebec selects immigrants to settle within the province. For Quebec immigration, candidates need to first get a CSQ (which isn‘t a PR Visa).

Once an application for a CSQ is submitted, the qualifications of the candidates are subjected to assessment at the provincial level. After getting approval for CSQ, the candidate must apply for medical and security checks at the federal level. After a candidate gets approval at the federal level, he/she gets Canada PR, completing the Quebec immigration process.
