All the above mentioned changes are applicable to the applications received on March 08, 2017 and later and the ones for which first hand review has not been started till the mentioned date.
Assess your eligibility before applying
The applicants are advised to assess their eligibility for the program first before applying for the Quebec Selection Certificate (CSQ).
New Area of Training List Revealed for Skilled Workers
The Quebec government has also published the new Area of Training List for the selection of the foreign skilled workers. This list is application w.e.f. March 08, 2017.
The Area of Training List is the key part of selection process of the Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP). The QSWP is the only immigration program in Canada that gives high importance to the area of training of the applicants and allocates points also based on the same. The idea is to review the candidates based on the highest probability of their economic success in the province of Quebec. The new Area of Training list shall include various courses of studies, which will offer the crucial immigration points to the applicants and their de facto partners for the their training or diplomas, etc. obtained outside or inside the Quebec province.
Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP) - A key Pathway for Canadian Permanent residency
The Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP) is the crucial pathway for permanent residency in Canada. It assesses the candidates on various parameters and provides the Quebec Selection Certificate (CSQ) to the candidates qualifying the criteria. Though, knowledge of French will now be the key criteria, however, the candidates without French language skills also get selected in the QSWP in large numbers.
The QSWP may soon open for the first application intake of this year. You may get in touch with a reliable immigration consultant for Canada to confirm the process and apply under expert guidance. For further assistance with regard to new guidelines of QSWP, you may send your queries to [email protected].
Visas Avenue, what a professional company they are, who value their clients. Mrigya Shah and Arpita Saha were always there to guide us to the right path. All our queries are answered to the satisfaction. They have been supportive throughout the PR process, and kept us motivated to not take any haste decision. Their knowledge and experience is up to the mark. Thank you Visas Avenue team, keep up the good work.
Great experience with the team. They were flawless in their process and more importantly they would nag us if we were relaxed in the process. They are aware of the complete process as well keep us updated with the changes in the rules(such as biometric became compulsory in the middle of my process and they informed in in time). Easily reachable. Special thanks to all who worked directly with me, namely Jasmeet, Raghuvir, Shweta and Archana.
When my husband and I were looking to move to Canada we researched on a few agencies to help us out with process. Visas Avenue came with a lot of good reviews and I am glad we went with them. Right from the initial meet up with the local team at Chennai and the follow up coordinating with Mrigya and Arpita has been great. They patiently answered all our queries and guided us at crucial junctures. They ensured our profile captured all the necessary points. We are very happy with our decision and glad we decided on visas avenue.
I had an excellent experience with Visas Avenue. Mr. Aditya from the Mumbai office, Mr. Nitin and my case manager Mr. Vijay Singh deserve a special mention. Visas Avenue made the entire Canada PR process look really simple. Huge credit to the team for their professionalism , regular updates and ability to handle critical situations effectively. Have recommended Visas Avenue to a lot of friends and will continue to do so!
The teams, people and process for VISA application at VISAs Avenue is worth appreciation. It was a time consuming process in my Case being a PNP applicant for Canada and I must say they really helped in getting Ontario province nomination. They know the exact stuff and what needs to be done in those cases. I want to thank Mr. Vijay and his team for their continued guidance and support in these 2 years. I would high recommend Visas Avenue for anyone wanting VISA assiatnce in New Delhi.
We first met Niranjan Kanade at their Mumbai branch and he was very professional which made us consider Visas Avenue to start with.I would like to thank my case manager Vijay Singh and his team (Nitin and Anjali) for the amazing service. My country of residence is currently Australia but despite of the time difference, I never felt like it is very difficult to communicate with them. They were always very prompt with their replies and made sure that all my doubts are cleared. Their documentation is so perfect that my application for PR got approved in just 3 months.They also keep following up with you from time-to-time which literally keeps you on your toes in terms of getting all our documents in place. I would certainly recommend Visas Avenue for anyone who is aspiring to become a Canadian Permanent Resident as their service is top class.
We have obtained our Canada PR (Express Entry) through Visas Avenue , Delhi and had a very pleasant experience with them. They are very professional and dedicated people. Our special compliments for Mr. Yatin Malhotra who was our case manager and his entire team. With his expertise and knowledge he lead our case to success within a short span which was even unexpected for us. His clear vision about every aspect of documentation made things easier for us. Moreover, at times when dilemma arises over any issue, he never hesitated in taking full responsibility for his decisions.He responded to our repeated queries over phone in very positive and polite manner and had taken personal pain to complete the whole process on time , keeping all deadlines into consideration. In addition, Ms. Shivani Mehra initially guided us properly that helped us build more confidence in Visas Avenue. Also Mr. Gaurav Arora, our case Co- Ordinator helped immensely to lead our case to success through his timely, systematic planning & support.Finally, I would like to conclude saying that Visas Avenue is worth every penny we spent and are very happy that now we are Permanent Residents of Canada.

Thank you all coz this wouldn't be possible with out you all. Some of you have worked more on my case than others and I thank-you for bearing with us too. Apologies if I'm missing out on any names.
