53000 new immigrants will be accepted in 2018 through the diverse immigration programs of Quebec revealed Immigration Quebec. Immigration to Quebec is separate from the national Express entry system in Canada. It has its own application procedures and eligibility criterions. Nevertheless, similar to any other immigration program in Canada, the final result of immigration to Quebec is Canada PR.
Economic, family reunion and humanitarian immigration categories are operated by Quebec. Most of the 53000 new immigrants will be accepted through any one of the economic immigration intakes. You have to first apply for the Quebec Selection Certificate CSQ. For this, you must be eligible through one of the immigration programs in Quebec. You must also be able to submit an application for the same, as quoted by the Canadim.
Once you are offered a CSQ, you are eligible to submit an application for Canada PR. Two crucial immigration targets are released by Quebec every year. The target for admissions gives details of the numbers of new immigrants that will be accepted by the province in that year. The target for selection gives the breakup of the numbers of CSQ offered via each program in that year.
The processing for Canada PR upon receiving CSQ can take some months. Thus the number of immigrants accepted for the province is not the same as the number of selected immigrants for that year.
Below is the table for admission target for Quebec for 2018:
|Asylum seekers and people in similar condition||8,100||8,800|
|Refugees chosen overseas||5,600||6,000|
|State-funded asylum seekers||1,550||1,600|
|Privately funded refugees||4,050||4,400|
|Refugees accepted locally||2,500||2,800|
