Quebec Plans To Admit 44,500 New Permanent Residents In 2020
Quebec has a plan of admitting nearly 44,500 fresh permanent residents besides also issuing nearly 24,700 fresh selection certificates in the next year. The provincial immigration ministry made an announcement to this effect.

Quebec Immigration On A Progressive Path

As many as 59 percent, of the new admissions in Quebec, will come through the economic immigration, of the province, and this includes the Quebec Skilled Worker Program also.  The ministry also stated that these targets respond to the labor needs of Quebec besides respecting its capacity to welcome and integrate the fresh arrivals. These levels provide an increase of 2,700 above the maximum level of 41,800 arrivals in the present year. The fact is that this reflects the promise of the governing Coalition to increase the immigration levels in a progressive manner after the province reduced them roughly by 20 percent.

Also, as per The CAQ this reduction was essential for ensuring the proper integration of new arrivals in Quebec’s society as well as the labor market.

Simon Jolin-Barrette, Immigration Minister of Quebec said that the immigration level in the province could be 50,000, by 2022, at the same level, when the CAQ took charge in 2018.

22,000 Skilled Workers will be Admitted in 2020

Also, the new range of admissions in Quebec for economic immigration programs was set between 25,500 and 26,300 that include 22,000 skilled workers. There is a target of admitting 3,600 candidates in business immigration programs, in the province. This also includes Quebec Self-Employed Worker Program and the Quebec Entrepreneur Program. 700 admissions are reserved for supplementary economic categories like caregivers as well as others. The target for family sponsorship, refugees and other programs is set at 18,200 permanent residents.

2020 Quebec Selection Certificate Targets

Based on the Canada-Quebec Accord provisions Quebec is empowered in selecting Economic Class immigrants and refugees in the province.

The selected persons get the Quebec Selection Certificate (CSQ) and also can subsequently submit the application to the federal government in Canada to get the PR visa. Quebec seeks that 71 per cent in total provincial admissions should be chosen by the province.

Quebec has the plan to issue selection certificates between 20,100 and 24,700 in 2020, but it is lesser than the 2019 plan for, which provided for 20,200 to 24,800. 15,000 of these will be in favor of candidates in the skilled worker category.

The Targets Selection Certificates Are:
