Quebec Announces Two Future Intake Periods for Skilled Worker Immigration Program
The Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP), one of the few remaining Canadian immigration programs operating on a first-come, first-served basis, will have an application intake period this coming June. Following this, another intake period will take place. Both of these intakes will receive up to 5,000 applications from individuals interested in settling in one of Canada’s most vibrant and diverse provinces. Through the QSWP, successful applicants and their families may obtain Canadian permanent resident status after receiving a Quebec Selection Certificate/certificat de selection du Québec (CSQ) from the government of the province of Quebec, home to the city of Montreal. The announcement that two future intake periods will take place — with both intakes accepting a larger number of applications than expected — should benefit individuals who have already created an account in the secure online space Mon projet Québec, as well as those who did not create an account earlier this year.
