24 Occupations are Given Priority by Quebec for Work Permit

24 Occupations are Given Priority by Quebec for Work Permit

Quebec gives priority to applications for temporary work permits in certain professions in demand during the coronavirus pandemic.

The province is also waiving the minimum recruitment requirements for 23 of the 24 priority occupations. Normally, employers in Quebec must demonstrate that they have tried to fill vacant positions with local talent as part of a labor market impact assessment (LMIA).

Seeing the demands brought on by the coronavirus, Quebec has decided to remove the recruitment requirements and has prioritized the following occupations from June 10:

  • Registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses (NOC Code – 3012)
  • Specialist Physicians (NOC Code – 3111)
  • General practitioners and family physicians (NOC Code – 3112)
  • Allied primary health practitioners (NOC Code – 3124)
  • Pharmacists (NOC Code – 3131)
  • Medical laboratory technologists (NOC Code – 3211)
  • Medical laboratory technicians and pathologists’ assistants (NOC Code – 3212)
  • Respiratory therapists, clinical perfusionists and cardiopulmonary technologists (NOC Code – 3214)
  • Other medical technologists and technicians (except dental health) (NOC Code – 3219)
  • Licensed practical nurses (NOC Code – 3233)
  • Other technical occupations in therapy and assessment (NOC Code – 3237)
  • Nurse aides, orderlies and patient service associates (NOC Code – 3413)
  • Other assisting occupations in support of health services (NOC Code – 3414)
  • Light duty cleaners (NOC Code – 6731)
  • Butchers, meat cutters and fishmongers-retail and wholesale (NOC Code – 6331)
  • Agricultural service contractors, farm supervisors and specialized livestock workers (NOC Code – 8252)
  • General Farm Workers (NOC Code – 8431)
  • Nursery and Greenhouse Workers (NOC Code – 8432)
  • Harvesting labourers (NOC Code – 8611)
  • Industrial butchers and meat cutters, poultry preparers and related workers (NOC Code – 9462)
  • Fish and seafood plant workers (NOC Code – 9463)
  • Labourers in food, beverage and associated products processing (NOC Code – 9617)
  • Labourers in fish and seafood processing (NOC Code – 9618)
  • Transport truck drivers (NOC Code – 7511) *prioritized, but minimum recruitment requirements still in effect

LMIA requests must be submitted simultaneously to Service Canada and MIFI.

The Quebec Department of Immigration – MIFI, requires that all LMIAs be submitted in the French language, except for homemaker positions. Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) can help employers meet the requirements in French.

Quebec’s LMIA Exemptions

If the temporary worker that is being employed by the province’s employers meet the following requirements, an LMIA is not required:

  • Have a valid work permit;
  • Hold a skilled worker Certificate of Selection in Quebec (CSQ);
  • Reside in Quebec
  • Have applied for permanent residence under the Quebec Skilled Worker class

Foreign workers must also fall any one of the following categories:

  • seeking to extend the work permit for their current employer;
  • Seeking to renew the work authorization with a new employer in Quebec;
  • They are a foreign student with a Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) and a job offer in the province;
  • A work permit holder under the International Experience Canada (IEC) program and:
  • Are seeking to extend the work authorization for the current employer;
  • Seeking to renew it for a new Quebec employer.

There are also other situations where employers do not need to have an LMIA, in accordance with the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act of Canada. Under this law, it may also happen that temporary foreign workers do not need to apply for a work permit from IRCC.

Employers who wish to hire temporary foreign workers who do not meet these criteria must follow the regular LMIA process for hiring foreign talent in Quebec.
