10,000 VISAS for the Quebec Skilled Worker Program

By July 13, 2016 February 28th, 2023 No Comments

The Quebec Skilled Worker program’s on-line application system will certainly approve 10,000 applicants in 2016. Candidates will certainly be selected under a first-come, first-served migration system. The 10000 visas will be divided in between 2 intake durations; one in June 2016 as well as one later in 2016.

This is a bit of surprise due to the fact that the basic agreement was: the February intake duration would certainly be the last of its kind.

There were initial issues with Quebec’s brand-new online system. These technical problems postponed the February intake until June to the disappointment of many. It would appear that Migration Quebec isn’t prepared to shift to an Express Entry-like system until at least 2017.


Rather than accepting 2,800 applications in February, Migration Quebec delayed the intake till June 13th, 2016. That said it isn’t really all bad news. The QSW program added 3,200 visas which enhanced the number of visas to 5,000. These included visas will certainly enhance the odds of applicants that already have finished a profile through Quebec’s brand-new online system.


Only applicants that already have an on-line profile with Immigration Quebec are qualified to receive their visa under the June period. New candidates need to wait the following period. Adhering to the June intake, interested prospects will once more have the ability to register online. Once registered, candidates will certainly be qualified for the next intake period.


While the specific opening date of the 2nd intake duration hasn’t already been validated, we know it will certainly happen in 2016. This consumption will certainly accept 5000 applications for Canadian permanent residency.  Let our Toronto immigration law firm help you with your Quebec permanent residency.
