How does Quebec's EOI System work?
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 EOI bank profiles will get a definite point score based on crucial parameters, i.e. education/training, skilled work experience, language proficiency (English or French), financial capability, etc.
1st Stage of application: To be accepted as an applicant, the applicants need to meet the minimum required score of 2 points in education (secondary school general diploma) and receive the 1 point 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 the following:
QSWP Updated Selection factors
EducationUp to 14 points (Cut-off Score = 2 points)
Area Of TrainingUp to 12 points
Validated Employment OfferUp to 14 points
Work ExperienceUp to 8 points
AgeUp to 16 points
Language ProficiencyUp to 22 points
Stay And Family In QuebecUp to 8 points
Spouse/Common-law partner CharacteristicsUp to 17 points
Presence Of Accompanying ChildrenUp to 8 points
Financial Self-Sufficiency1 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, who meet the initial requirements for education and financial self-sufficiency; must meet the required cut-off score of 43 points for a grouping of employability factors. It is as per 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 a bonus but is not required to be eligible for the QSWP. The Employability cut-off score for candidates with a spouse or common-law partner is 52.
3rd Stage- applicants who meet the Employability cut-off point score also require meeting the minimum threshold under a grouping of Selection factors, a passing score of 50 points (59 with a spouse or common-law partner). This step considers the points awarded under the six factors considered for Employability, 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 are also applicable 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 have reduced to less than 12 months, which was huge (32 months) earlier. The applicants receiving the Quebec selection certificate can directly apply for to IRCC for Canadian permanent residency.
