Quebec Skilled Workers Immigration Services Program

For international citizens interested in the Canadian province of Quebec, the Federal Skilled Workers program, they must intend on staying inside the province itself. This is because the Canadian province of Quebec runs its independent immigration system that is outside the preview of the IRCC or Federal economic immigration program.

Therefore, a skilled immigrant looking for work in Quebec has to undergo the Quebec Selection Certificate or Certificat de selection du Quebec or CSQ, under the category of Quebec Skilled Workers program or QSWP. For more information about the process of moving to Quebec or any other Canadian province, consult your Wow Immigration Services mentor.
