Quebec-has-Massive-Plans-for-Many-Immigrants
Quebec has announced its Immigration Plan for 2018. It will continue to welcome skilled workers, businessmen, family members of its residents, and also refugees. This new plan will be implemented during the transition period for Quebec, as it wants to take time to prepare an immigration system based declaration-of-interest model, similar to the Express Entry system of the Federal Government.

At present, Quebec does not have any participation in it. The date of rolling out this system and its ways of functioning are not yet known.

The plan has Two prominent figures being the number of targeted people for selection by Quebec and issuing Quebec Selection Certificate or Certificat de sélection du Québec, and the number of targeted people for admission to Quebec as new PRs.

The CSQ is an important document which is issued by the Province of Quebec asserting that the holder has been selected and has met the criteria set by the province for settling in Quebec. With this, the candidate selected can apply for Canadian permanent residence, asking the federal immigration authorities, to view his/her application on admissible grounds.

Quebec proposes to issue 29,000 certificates under the skilled worker program during 2018. In this figure, the certificates issued under the Regular Skilled Worker Program and Quebec Experience Program PEQ, or Programme de l’expérience Québécoise are included.

The Regular Skilled Worker Program is a program based on points and has been designed to greet newcomers who meet the points threshold. This is calculated by considering the factors like the sphere of training, work experience gained, the age of the candidate, language proficiency in French/English, relationship with Quebec done through family visits), the spouse or common-law partner of the applicant.

The applicants should know that though French proficiency is a factor, it is not an eligibility requirement.

Persons with limited knowledge of French, but possessing other strong credentials are eligible to submit their application. Knowing French by an adult skilled worker on getting admitted to the province is a stated goal enclosed in the Immigration Plan of Quebec for 2018.

Aspiring applicants must accumulate sufficient points based on these factors before moving to a second points threshold, where the points are given for dependent children accompanying them and after satisfying the criteria of financial self-sufficiency.

Earlier Quebec had announced in its official Gazette that has a list of an entire set of legislative/regulatory decisions, of the Government of Quebec, that the Regular Skilled Worker Program will receive 5000 new applications before March 31st 2018. The dates for the intake period have not been announced so far. A few temporary residents based in Quebec, and some persons with a valid job offer, will be allowed to submit their application for a CSQ.

The PEQ is separate, intended to help overseas workers and global students residing in the province to settle on a permanent basis. Its applicants must prove ability in advanced-intermediate French. Certificates issued to the applicants in PEQ are dealt quickly, and the applicants get a decision about their application within weeks.

Quebec has several business immigration programs meant for investors, entrepreneurs and self-employed persons also. Between 4,000 and 6,000 certificates will be issued to business applicants during the course of 2018. The Quebec Immigrant Investor Program is popular and offers an inactive investment opportunity, which is guaranteed by an entity of the Quebec government.
