Changes to the selection process for economic immigrants | Quebec Immigration

The following changes in the selection process for Quebec Immigration Program (economic immigrants)
  • The first criterion changed is that of “Area of training.” This change ends the requirement by the Ministere for recent work experience related to the area of training for diplomas obtained more than five years ago. From now on, applicants will receive points for their diplomas regardless of when they were earned, provided that they were obtained before the application was submitted.
  • The second criterion changed is that of “Level of education.” This change will allow applicants to obtain points for this criterion provided that they obtained their diploma before their application was submitted.
  • Furthermore, the Minister will no longer do switches between the principal applicant and the spouse. Accordingly, the principal applicant identified when the application is submitted will remain the same throughout the review process by the Ministère.
