Major Canadian Province, Quebec has released its immigration plan for the year 2018. As per the new plan, the province is likely to welcome the immigrants under various categories in the next year. Skilled workers will be in the priority list followed by businessmen, family reunification, and refugee category. The applicants were expecting Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP) intake to open this year, however it wasn’t to be. Now all eyes are on Quebec Immigration plan for 2018.
Quebec Immigration Plan 2018
The province mulls over a new immigration system, similar to federal express entry system’s ‘Expression for Interest’ model. Quebec doesn’t have any express entry stream aligned with its immigration program like other Canadian provinces. The Immigration plan is expected to be implemented during the transition to a new system. However, province has not revealed any further detail with regard to the functioning of the new system.
The immigration plan is divided in two parts, i.e. target number of candidates to be selected by the province of Quebec for the CSQ (Quebec Selection Certificate) and the target number of applicants to be welcomed in the province as new permanent residents.
What is CSQ?
The Quebec Selection Certificate is a document, which is issued by the Quebec government to the candidates selected for allocating the Permanent Residency in province through Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP). The candidates, who receive CSQ from Quebec, become eligible to directly apply for Canadian permanent residency to federal government or IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada).
Skilled Workers to lead the tally of immigrants
The skilled workers will be invited in most numbers as per the new immigration plan of Quebec. As per 2018 plan, Quebec will issue a total of 29,000 Quebec Selection Certificates (CSQs) under Skilled Worker category. The two key streams under Skilled Worker category are Regular Skilled Worker Program and Quebec Experience Program.
As per an official announced by the Quebec government earlier this year, the province of Quebec will accept a total of 5,000 new applications under the Regular Skilled Worker Program, prior to the end of current intake cycle, i.e. before March 31, 2018. However, the exact dates were not confirmed for the intake. Since, no intake opened this year; the applicants are expecting the same to occur in the first quarter of 2018.
Quebec will also issue significant number of Certificates (i.e. 4,000- 6,000) under Business immigration programs, i.e. Self Employed, Investors and Entrepreneurs, etc.

Visas Avenue is a highly professional immigration agency providing top-notch value-for-money services. Me and my wife successfully applied for and received Canada PR about two weeks ago and this wouldn't have been possible without the support and guidance from my Visa Avenue agent - Ms. Ruchika Sharma. They reviewed our entire application, provided suggestions and recommendations and did thorough follow-up. I know friends who have been trying for Canada PR for more than 3 years - but our application got accepted within a year! Thanks to the suggestions by Visas Avenue, our documents got processed very quickly and there was no request for additional documents or information from Canadian immigration (which usually causes delay or rejection). A big thanks to Ruchika Sharma and her team!
