No Job Offers Needed for 75 Occupations to Apply for Quebec Skilled Worker Program

The Quebec Skilled Worker Program allows interested immigrants to apply without a job offer on more than 75 eligible occupations and areas of training that will enable applicants to qualify for a Quebec Certificate of Selection.

The intake of applications started on August 16 and is open until August 22.

The QSWP application process moved online in January 2016. Individuals who are interested in applying are thereby required to create and complete an online profile at intake management system Mon projet Québec.

The QSWP reportedly receives applications during designated intake periods, which have a limit on the number of applications that may be received. The upcoming intake period is expected to receive 5,000 applications through Mon projet Québec.

The points-based program is a first-come, first-served basis and those who successfully submit their online profile will be accepted in the next intake period.

Certain candidates, including temporary residents of Quebec and candidates with a validated job offer in Quebec, can submit their application through Mon Projet Québec at any time.

Applicants must meet a minimum of points to be eligible for the program. A candidate’s family situation will impact the criteria. Single applicants are required to attain 49 points, while applicants including their spouse or common-law partner on their application must obtain 57 points.

Educational background, work experience, languages knowledge, family situation can credit additional points.

The following is a partial reference to the Quebec Immigration High Demand Occupation List. The list of occupations provides applicants from outside Canada, who do not have intermediate French abilities, the best chances to qualify under Quebec rules.
