Quebec accepts applications for a program that is closed

April 2018, 05

The immigration department of Quebec had a technical problem in their online portal On April 1st. Consequently, the users were successful in submitting applications for the Quebec Skilled Worker program. This was despite the fact that the program was not open at that time. The authorities have announced that the received applications are invalid and they are returning the applications. Moreover, the payment will be reimbursed, wherever it applies.


The Quebec Skilled Worker program is very popular. It does not require that the applicant must be living in Quebec while applying. The skilled workers who are living abroad also can apply for this program. There is a condition that they must meet the other requirements.

The QSW program accepts applications during specific intake periods only. The program is not open to fresh applications for a long time in the year.  It is only open in a specific time to accept a fixed quota of applications.

On April 1st, because of this a technical issue the QSW program has accepted fresh applications. In fact, on this date there was no plan to admit the applications. As a result, the Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Diversité et de l’Inclusion has cancelled all the applications which were submitted. Furthermore, it has arranged to refund the payments received by it.


Previously, QSW has accepted applications in August 2016. Quebec has also announced that this program will accept 5,000 new applications. The draws will take place from April 1st, 2018, to continue till August 15th, 2018.


Some applicants in QSW have an exemption in the intake period. They can submit an application without any time constraint. These categories are:

Applicants who have an offer of employment issued by a Quebec employer which is valid as per MIDI

Temporary residents of Quebec who have an endorsement to submit a Certificat de sélection du Québec application in the QSW program


The Federal Skilled Worker program is an Express Entry immigration program of Canada. It has similarity with QSW and the candidates need not reside in Canada. Moreover, they do not need any experience in Canada, for applying. The aspirants who are living abroad and have reasonable credentials can qualify easily. Through this they can attain Canadian permanent residency.

The Quebec Experience Program is an easy way for Quebec immigration for the persons who can speak French. Moreover, they must have work experience or educational experience in the province. The interested persons can consider working temporarily. They can also pursue studies in Quebec to gain sufficient experience which is needed for this program.
