How to apply for the Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP)?

There are two steps to apply for permanent residence in the province of Quebec:

  • Apply to the Quebec provincial government to obtain a Quebec Selection Certificate (CSQ). This certificate will show that the province has chosen its holder for permanent residence in the province.
  • After obtaining the CSQ, the candidate must submit an application for the RP Canada visa to IRCC with the CSQ certificate.

As the federal government’s Express Entry program, the QSWP program is also a points-based immigration program. This allows them to name only immigrants, who have the skills necessary to contribute to the economic development of the province.

If you are applying as a single applicant, you need to get 50 points to be eligible for QSWP. However, in case you’re applying with your spouse or common-law partner you need to score a minimum of 59 points.
