Quebec Province has announced  51000 new immigrants by 2017
Quebec government is planning to bring in 51000 new immigrants to their province by 2017 as per the Immigration Minister Kathleen Weil. She confirmed and informed this week that they will be  providing an additional  fund for French Language –training programs to the newcomers which may cost $31 million.  Also the total cost to the complete area is estimated  $168 million a year to the Government. 

Weil also said that they may raise this number to 52500 per year by 2019 despite of opposition from other parties to maintain it at 50000 which would be best for the province. Quebec has unique immigration agreement with the Federal Government and has its own selection process for economic immigrants.

Quebec government has raised the new arrival percentage to 63% against current 59%. The new arrivals who are qualified workers and business people come through different programs like (QSWP) Quebec Skilled Worker Program, Quebec Experience Class and the Quebec Investor Program.

Weil also announced that after three rounds of consultation with the opposition she has a plan to ensure that they are ready to receive the new immigrants with French Languages courses and also job opportunities . They will also have a new Job Bank for this province which will be useful for the immigrants to match their skills and get work even before they arrive, this is expected to open and up by this New Year.

Quebec also has immigration through Federal Government’s  Family Reunification programs which is  expecting 11500 people  to  reunited with their families in this province by next year.
