Quebec Immigration target in 20220
In 2020, Quebec had plans to provide permanent residence to 69225 but only 25,225 permanent residents only can be welcomed and the target fell short by 18,775. Now, the French speaking province has planned to give allotments to those who have not been welcomed in 2020 along with new immigrants.
Number of temporary foreign workers may also increase
Quebec also has plans to invite temporary foreign workers. Last year, roughly 30,000 temporary foreign workers were invited to work in Quebec. The application process will be made simple and several trades and occupations will be added. This will help in the fast-track processing of the applications for the temporary workers.
Business and industry groups and put pressure of doubling the immigration so that the problem of labor shortage can be reduced. The group has asked to welcome 80,000 people every year. Véronique Proulx, president of the Manufacturiers et Exportateurs du Québec, has said that the province should welcome 90,000 people immediately.
