Quebec Immigration - Skilled Worker Program


The Quebec immigration selection system for Quebec Skilled Workers is designed to indicate which applicants are likely to become economically established upon immigration to Quebec.

Applicants who are successful under the Regular Skilled Worker Program are issued a Quebec Selection Certificate (Certificat de selection du Quebec, also known as a CSQ), which is then followed by a Canadian Permanent Resident (Immigration) Visa. In order to qualify for a CSQ, you must score enough points under the Quebec Immigration selection system. A single (unmarried) applicant must score at least 49 points based on this system, while an applicant with a spouse or common-law partner must score at least 57 points.

Quebec Skilled Workers applicants are not assessed based upon the selection factors of the Federal Skilled Worker Class. Citizenship and Immigration Canada acknowledges the selection of applicants who meet Quebec immigration selection criteria.
