Quebec Immigration In-demand Occupation List

Quebec Immigration In-demand Occupation List 1

Most of the provinces in Canada have their own provincial nomination program that allows them to nominate the skilled and capable immigrants for a permanent residence visa in the province. These PNPs have different requirements and eligibility criteria depending on the local labor market demands of the province. But Quebec does not have the Provincial Nomination Program (PNP) for inviting the skilled immigrants.

For immigrating to the province of Quebec there is no stream that requires candidates to have occupation in-demand in the province. The only way for a skilled immigrant to move to the province of Quebec is via the – Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP)

 Quebec province has its own immigration program that allows them to invite the potential immigrants that can help in the development of the province via the Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP). Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP) enables highly educated and trained foreign nationals to move to the province of Quebec as skilled workers.
