Quebec, Canada has Allocated nearly $200 Million to Support Immigrants
The eastern province of Quebec in Canada has allocated $179.4 million of its long-term budget to integrate new immigrants into the Canadian territory.  $13.5 million will go to attracting and retaining new international students and the rest to integrating newcomers to French-Canadian culture in the province. The Francization program, provided by the government of Quebec, gives those with little or no French language ability free French language courses to help them settle in the province, and find employment if they don’t already have a job. 

The money is allocated for the next five years. The French and English speaking province aims to welcome over 50,000 new immigrants in 2017 alone, via its range of immigration programs. The Quebec Experience Class (PEQ) for students and foreign workers requires proof of an advanced level of French. Quebec has a skilled worker program which is closed for the present, with the exclusion of those with an employment offer validated by the government, or already working on a temporary basis within Quebec. These candidates can begin their permanent residency application via the Quebec Selection Certificate (CSQ).   Quebec’s business immigration programs, family sponsorship and refugee streams aligned with the federal government are currently open.

Quebec is keen to attract and retain foreign students. The new investment follows a $1.6 million scheme to encourage international students in Montreal to stay after graduation. Montreal has over 30 universities and higher education establishments and was voted Best City in the World for Students 2017 by QS World University Rankings. The scheme to retain students “I Choose Montreal” is run by the economic development organization Montreal International and was developed alongside the Ministry of Immigration, Diversity, and Inclusion (MIDI). The scheme combines workshops, student activities, language education, a new website, and job fairs and is hoped it will provide a template to roll out across Quebec.  The hope is that students who already know the language, culture and are highly skilled will stay and make their permanent home in the popular Canadian province.

Quebec is the largest Canadian province by area and the second-largest by population. The population is currently just over 8 million. Montreal itself is Canada’s second largest city and has a population of nearly 2 million. More information on Quebec, its facilities for foreign students and the routes to immigration available can be found at the Immigration Quebec official website.
