Immigrating to Quebec

The Quebec government admits immigrants under a unique two-step points based system (pre-selection and selection) which favors applicants who have a strong knowledge of the French language, a sought after profession and who will adapt well to Quebec society. A successful applicant is issued a Quebec Selection Certificate. Once issued, the Federal government assumes sole responsibility for medical and security screening. In practical terms however, Quebec can only be considered a suitable destination for French speaking applicants. To be selected as an immigrant worker, you must have acquired training and occupational skills that will facilitate your insertion into the job market. You must also have adequate knowledge of French. Knowledge of English is also an asset not to be overlooked.
One of the most interesting aspects of the Quebec immigration program is that applicants need not necessarily have job offer to successfully immigrate to Quebec. Though applicants with job offer are naturally given a higher priority, applicants who can display a strong connection to Quebec, both commercially and domestically, are also given more than due consideration.
Quebec is a beautiful province in Canada with a tremendous living and working opportunities for foreign skilled workers.
