About Quebec Regular Skilled Worker Program (QSWP)
The Quebec Regular Skilled Worker Program (QSWP) is for skilled workers who are willing to migrate and have a settled life in Quebec. This QSWP especially encourages skilled workers and international graduates.
If the candidate is willing to settle in Quebec, then the profile of the applicant will be assessed under a different system compared to other provinces in Canada.
The applicants who are invited to apply for permanent selection should complete the process within six months, which will start from the date of application submitted to process the application. This includes the submission of checklist documents and forms required.
If the candidate’s application is successful, then they will receive CSQ (Certificat de sélection du Québec) or Quebec Selection Certificate, which can be used to apply for permanent residence to the Canadian federal government.
