The government of Quebec is set to introduce an online system to lure global skilled professionals. It has announced that the Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP) rules will be revised and a new online tool will be introduced for applicants willing to migrate to Canada under QSWP. This will be effective from Oct 1, 2015.
The details of the online tool are not yet disclosed by the government of Quebec, however it is said that it will simplify the application process for coming seasons of QSWP. Applicants would be able to submit and also check the real time status of their applications online.
Besides that, Quebec has revised the document checklist and has reduced the requirement of certified true copies. Applicants can submit photocopies of most their documents, instead of the original ones. This change will be effective immediately for all applicants who have already submitted their applications and are awaiting a decision.
Earlier this year, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) introduced Express Entry program allowing aspiring skilled immigrants to submit their profile and receive an invitation-to-apply upon being eligible.
Similarly, British Columbia also introduced express entry program for the province. And now, Quebec too will be simplifying the process for skilled workers through this new online application system.
The amendment in immigration rules across major Canadian provinces show that Canada is willing to accommodate more and more skilled workers. And that too with ease.
