Quebec Selected Skilled Workers:
About the Process:
The application process for skilled workers who want to become permanent residents of Canada and live in Quebec has few agreements; the Canadian government has few special agreements on Quebec immigration as the province has its own rules for choosing immigrants who will adapt well to living there. To immigrate to Canada as a Quebec-selected skilled worker, you must apply in the following two stages:
- Apply to the Government of Quebec for a Quebec Selection (Certificat de sélection du Québec[CSQ])
- The province of Quebec will assess you for using its own rules
- The certificate proves that the province of Quebec has accepted you as an immigrant
- If the province of Quebec selects you and gives you a CSQ, then you must apply to Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship of Canada for Permanent Residence.
Note: These instructions are for your application for Permanent Resident (PR) only.
