The emigration category chosen from Quebec is the third category of people eligible to emigrate to Canada.
In this category, any qualified or professional person intending to reside in Montreal or in another city in the province of Quebec can apply. The selection of these candidates is based on different criteria from those of candidates who wish to settle elsewhere in Canada. The Quebec immigration system is designed to indicate the possibilities and chances of success for a person in Quebec.
Once the selection is complete, those who pass will receive a certificate of choice from Quebec and will then be able to obtain an entry visa to Canada.
In order to qualify for this certification, candidates must score enough points under the Quebec selection system. The individual candidate must score at least 60 points and the candidate, accompanied by another family member, must score at least 68 points.
Below is a summary of the selection criteria for the Quebec Immigrant Selection System.
Education: up to 19 points
– Employment: up to 15 points and the minimum requirement is 8 points
Work experience: up to 10 points, minimum required 1 point
Age: up to 10 points
Language proficiency: up to 24 points
– Visits and links with Quebec: up to 9 points
– Characteristics of the pair: up to 17 points
– Child support: up to 8 points
Financial independence: 1 point and this is the minimum requirement
Adaptability: up to 10 points
You can see that when it comes to financial independence, you only get one point and at the same time the minimum score you need to score is one point. This means that if you are not financially independent, you cannot apply for this category. In My Immigration Consultant, you can find details on the minimum requirements for financial independence. You also have access to the point system for all the above criteria.
All candidates must pass and pass the medical and security checks carried out by the Canadian government. Applicants in this category are not assessed based on the selection factors for the skilled worker (federal) category, because Canadian authorities recognize the selection of candidates who meet the selection criteria for immigration to Quebec. However, as described above, applicants must first obtain a Choice of Quebec certificate.
After that, they must submit an application for permanent residence to the Canadian Department of Citizenship and Immigration. CIC will then assess your application based on Canadian immigration regulations.
Again, I would like to emphasize that skilled workers in Quebec are not assessed according to the criteria for selecting the six factors described in my previous articles. It is recommended that before submitting your application to the Quebec provincial authorities, visit the Immigration du Québec website as the selection criteria may change at any time.
In My Immigration Consultant, you have direct access to this site and you can check for possible changes at any time.
The candidates in this class are mainly people who know French because the language most spoken in Quebec is French.
