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.
Category wise Immigration Applicants to be selected by Quebec
The below list indicates the target numbers of new permanent residents to be welcomed in the province of Quebec.

|Refugees and people in similar situations||8,700||9,500|
|Refugees selected abroad||6,100||6,500|
|Taken in charge by the state||1,650||1,700|
The above list may comprise the people who acquired a CSQ before 2018.

Thanks for taking care of my case Shivangi ! I am delighted that we have completed a big mile stone by submitting the application well in time. I don't have to worry anymore, as you will continue to be there to help me achieve the final outcome. Let me take this moment to Thank you Shivangi ! You have been a great support throughout the process. Your conduct and approach while handling my application was beyond expectations. The way you handled the case and helped me in understanding the complexities involved in my case and arranging the documentation on time has been excellent. I am sure with you being in charge will take the VISA'S AVENUES to a great heights. Thanks!
Visas Avenue is certainly one of the best companies which would help us in getting a Visa and is very transparent in nature. I got my Aus PR in close to 7 months as promised and at no stage, I was disappointed. I got to deal with "Jyotsana" from Hyderabad and my case was given to "Shivangi" from Delhi and I am glad that Shivangi worked on my case and she was thorough professional to say the least. Shivangi was sending me timely updates on my PR status and at no point, I felt insecure or disappointed and I knew my Visa application is in safe hands. I cannot thank Visas Avenue and especially "Shivangi Arora" enough for helping me get my PR. You are the best. I encourage people to choose Visas Avenue mainly because they have professionals like "Shivangi Arora" for their VISA dreams to see it come true.
I recently got my Canada PR confirmation, for anyone who is serious about migrating to Canada or Australia I think Visas Avenue is an excellent place to start the journey. As with anyone I had my own reservations about contacting a consultant for my immigration needs, I am currently residing in Singapore but I chose to go with Visas Avenue in India, looking back I think I made a wise decision.Below are the reasons why I would recommend this place :1. My consultant was Ruchika and team, from day one Ruchika and team made sure I am not making silly but costly mistakes while filling up the applications.One thing I admire about Ruchika and her team member Amandeep was their attention to detail. They have an hawk's eye in detecting the seemingly trivial errors in application but those which will have dire consequences if not corrected.2. At no point in my application process I was left alone to fend for myself, each and every part of the process was explained to me in meticulous detail and were closely monitored.3. One of the major advantages of going for this consultancy is I was given prior information about whatever documents that needed time to collect. In this way by the time I was ready to apply I already had all the necessary time-consuming documents (employee reference letter, university transcripts etc.) This way I was able to save valuable time. If not for Ruchika I would have not be able to collectt all the required documents within the 90 day deadline after ITA.In other words once you enter Visas Avenue, you are in safe hands!!
My husband and I am elated to get the Australian PR, thanks to Shivangi Arora from Visas Avenue. Shivangi was our case manager and like a friend, she guided us through the entire procedure. We could never have done it without her help and guidance. Shivangi was a step ahead in the entire process, starting from RPL document collation & verification, PTE, EOI and finally the Visa Application. Her confidence in us led us to believe that the PR Visa was within our reach.We would recommend Shivangi and Visas Avenue to all our friends and family who are looking for Immigration.All the best for all future endeavors!!!
I took a leap of faith when I decided to go with Visas Avenue in November 2016, 1st because I never heard of it from anyone I know and 2nd it s office is in Delhi (Remote for me as I was in Nagpur). But eventually it paid off in July 2017.I got my PR for Canada in 8 Months :-). It was really a wonderful journey with them, especially Namrata & Kanika. Namrata helped me in initial days with confusion between Australia and Canada and many other profile specific queries and has been a great support always. and Kanika was my Case manager, she helped with my profile, documents, the process and many many other things. I was a bit worried since I changed my job after the ITA but Kanika always helped me getting the proper required documents and assured that things will go smoothly; I really appreciate your support Kanika. Though I have never met anyone from the Visas Avenue in person and didn t even visit their office,still they handled everything perfectly and were always helpful via phone and email. I never got a proper chance to thank you both due to the PR excitement, A big thanks to both of you Kanika and Namrata.
"First of all I would like to thank Tabby K who initially guided me in detail through the Australian PR process, even though I had already conveyed that I will not be signing up for any Professional Services and will be filing it on my own. Still she detailed out every step and answered all my queries then and there itself. Secondly and most importantly a big thanks to our case officer Kirti Chauhan whose impeccable professionalism and patience in hearing and responding to our thousand queries helped us achieving the Visa. We used to be extra cautious and pessimistic with every step, but she always kept us motivated and was a great support during the whole process. I will definitely recommend Visas Avenue to all Visa aspirants."
