The Immigration Minister of the Quebec province of Canada, Kathleen Weil has announced that the new immigration policy of Quebec will be focused on luring and retaining the talented migrants in the province. As per her, The existing policy has not been amended or renewed for years now and hence, the new policy will focus on the certain key aspects, which holding the province back in terms of inviting and retaining quality migrants in the province. It will work on the below key aspects of immigration to Quebec.
Focus on highly-trained immigrants
The new policy will focus on the people, who are well trained in different high-demand occupations in the province and will try to facilitate their immigration as well. Weil said that the government and employers both have to take steps to help high trained immigrants to get their skills and qualification assessed and recognized.
A Need for faster Immigration System
Weil also stressed on making the existing immigration system faster. As per her, the existing system takes about up to 4 years for an individual to immigrate to the province of Quebec and in the meantime, the demand and scenarios of Labour market here gets changed completely. Hence, the existing process will now be changed by employing the digital technology in the system of immigration. The businesses will also get support from the province for hiring the immigrants.
Retaining the Talent in Quebec
The Quebec Immigration Minster emphasized on the need of not losing the best talent to other countries, i.e. especially, the countries from Europe and America. Addressing a news conference Kathleen Weil said, "People have a lot of choices right now," She further added, "Many European countries and the U.S. are interesting [places] to potential immigrants and we want to do as well, or better, than our competitors."
The temporary workers are also the key part of Quebec society and economy. As per Weil, the retention rate of temporary workers in the province is close to 20-30 percent; however, it’s far too less, especially, when we look at the countries like New Zealand that has this rate close to 90 percent.
The immigrants from diverse countries have played a significant role in the economy of Quebec over the years. Hence, the economic plan of year 2015-16 has allocated $42.5 million for the next five years to support the immigrants and culturally diversified minorities, so that they can contribute more to the economy and development of the province.
The new policy will include a 5-year action plan for immigration, i.e. from 2016 to 2021.
Retain Overseas Students

A special mention for Mr. Vaibhav Saini who was very approachable and customer friendly and answered all my queries whenever I asked. A big thumbs up to the team and Visas Avenue. Thank you again.
Our experience with Visas Avenue has been a good one. Though initially there was some delay due to the case manager being changed, when my case was taken up by Ms. Priyanka Kandwal, the process has been pretty smooth. I would like to thank her and the team for their patience while handling our case and would like to commend their knowledge and expertise when it comes to the rules and regulations of the whole process. I would highly recommend them for the PR application process and already have done so. Wishing them all the best!!
