The Québec Skilled Worker program was designed for qualified individuals with acquired training and occupational skills who can effectively establish themselves in the Province of Québec. All eligible candidates and their families must meet both the selection and the admission requirements.
To be selected by Québec, candidates must meet the certain requirements under Skilled Worker program and must obtain a sufficient number of points under the Québec Immigration selection system. A single applicant must score at least 49 points, when an applicant with a spouse or common-law partner must score at least 57 points. Applicants who are successful under the Québec Immigration selection system are issued a Québec Selection Certificate, at which point they may apply for a Canadian permanent resident visa.
