As of April 1, 2014, the Quebec Skilled Worker (QSW) program has been extended for another year. This time is that there will be only 6,500 applications accepted for review.
This is a drastic reduction from the previous year, when there was a cap/maximum of 20,000. It is important to note that the nature of this program is first-come first-served; therefore it may reach its cap before the year is up.
The QSW program aims to attract individuals wishing to live and work in Quebec. The QSW program does not require a job offer but uses a points-based system to evaluate applicants. QSW applicants need to obtain sufficient points, which are awarded for education, language proficiency, work experience and adaptability. The QSW program is particularly attractive to applicants the occupations (Nursing, Computer Engineering and many others) who obtain bonus points for their areas of training. The QSW program has been an extremely popular program for eligible applicants and with the applicant limit being reduced, may become even more popular.
