The new EOI based system of QSWP will replace the old ‘First come, First Served pattern of accepting the application. An applicant 18 years or above can create and submit the profile in Expression of Interest (EOI) Bank of Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP). The profiles in the EOI bank will get a definite point score based on key parameters, i.e. education/training, skilled work experience, language proficiency (English or French), financial capability, etc.
1st stage of application: To be accepted as applicant, the applicants need to meet the minimum required score of 2 points in education (secondary school general diploma) and receive the 1 point that is given for financial capability/self-sufficiency. Most of the QSWP selection factor points remain the same, which are there in the existing point grid. Some changes are there in following:
|Education||Up to 14 points (Cut-off Score = 2 points)|
|Area Of Training||Up to 12 points|
|Validated Employment Offer||Up to 14 points|
|Work Experience||Up to 8 points|
|Age||Up to 16 points|
|Language Proficiency||Up to 22 points|
|Stay And Family In Quebec||Up to 8 points|
|Spouse/Common-law partner Characteristics||Up to 17 points|
|Presence Of Accompanying Children||Up to 8 points|
|Financial Self-Sufficiency||1 point|

Apart from the above six factors, you can also earn points for spouse’s education and training, work experience and language proficiency.
2nd Stage- the applicants which meet the initial requirements for education and financial self-sufficiency must then meet the required cut-off score of 43 points for a grouping of factors called Employ ability, which is based on a candidate’s score in education and training, work experience, age, language proficiency, time spent in Quebec and family in Quebec and a validated employment offer. An employment offer is an added bonus but is not required in order to be eligible for the QSWP. The Employ ability cut-off score for candidates with a spouse or common-law partner is 52.
3rd Stage- applicants who meet the Employ ability cut-off point score also require meeting the minimum threshold under a grouping of factors called Selection, which is a passing score of 50 points (59 with a spouse or common-law partner). This step takes into account the points awarded under the six factors considered for Employ ability, with the addition of children and the financial self-sufficiency. A spouse or common-law partner’s education and training, work experience and language proficiency is also applied in such cases.
QSWP will issue invitations to the top scoring profiles. The applicants who receive the invitation to apply for CSQ (Quebec Selection Certificate), need to submit their application within 90 days.
As per Quebec, the processing time of the applications received for CSQ will now be reduced to less than 12 months which was huge (32 months) earlier. The applicants receiving Quebec selection certificate can directly apply for to IRCC for Canadian permanent residency.

My daughter applied for her Canadian PR through Visas Avenue. They helped my daughter with each and everything. Knowledgeable Staff, really good client service. I would especially like to thank "Archana Kumari" (she handled my daughter's case) for her support and help. She guided us through everything. Thank you so much, Archana.
The experience has been good. Archana & team were always available & made it a point to answer all my queries. Thanks to the entire team!!
Highly recommend them. This is not my first experience with them, but in fact have got my brother s, bhabhi s and two friend s applications already processed through them. The fees is quite reasonable and transparent and even for a straightforward case, I would recommend going with VA. Special shout out to Vaibhav and Samiksha for standing with me throughout the process. Thanks a ton, guys!""The best thing about Visa Avenues is that when they take up your application, they really get invested in the process. I started off with a 189/190 application but when the application conditions changed, VA advised me to go for 489. This is significant as they normally dont lodge 489 applications, but did it on my behalf as I was already a client. This willingness to go beyond what is strictly required is what I appreciate the most. Further, they are very diligent in going through the requirements and in dotting every i and ticking every t.
"Visa Avenues is a superb professional services available for immigration related consulting. They are super prompt, reliable, thorough and provide alternatives if required. My experience is based on working with Samiksha Lal, Vaibhav Saini and Shivangi Arora."

I am highly thankful to Visas Avenue especially Resham, Mrigya, Shivangi, Samiksha, Vaibhav for all the help and support they provided. It could not have been possible without their cooperation on my case. I still remember Samiksha & Vaibhav working late night with me to submit my application and patiently listening to all my queries. Hats off to the team at Visas Avenue. They have the right set of candidates working on your case, they know their job, what documents to submit to make your case stronger so that it leads to success. At last I can say if its PR consulting services it has to be Visas Avenue!
After exhaustive research I zeroed on Visas Avenue for my Australian PR and the decision was totally worth it. My case was handled in a professional way, Shivangi and team gave me clear road map on how to get my desired visa. Vaibhav and Samiksha guided me through the tuff and complex visa journey, they were just a phone call away for my queries. I would strongly recommend Shivangi and team for PR aspirants. Thanks again to Shivangi, Vaibhav and Samiksha, keep up the good work.
