Major Changes in Quebec Experience Program with New Requirements Added

Major Changes in Quebec Experience Program with New Requirements Added

Province of Quebec has introduced major changes in the requirements for international students and immigrants with work experience of working in the province, to apply for the status of a permanent resident. Some of the changes will be effective from November 1, 2019, while others will start from the beginning of the New Year. These changes affect Quebec’s immigration program – Quebec Experience Class (PEQ).

There is no confirmation from the provincial office whether these changes will affect the pending applications.

One of the major changes is the introduction of an in-demand occupation list (For French only). Candidates with work experience of working in the province must have work experience in any one of the occupations that are mentioned in the list. Work experience required depends on the respective National Occupational Classification (NOC) code. The minimum requirement is of 12 months in the occupations categorized under NOC skill type 0, A or B. For candidates with work experience in an occupation categorized under NOC skill type C or D, 18 months of work experience is required.

For International Students, they need to make sure that their area of training is one of the Quebec degrees listed under Section A and B of Quebec’s Area of Training list.

Another change is the language requirements. From January 1, 2020 changes in language requirement will be implemented that will affect both groups applying under PEQ.

For candidates to prove their proficiency in the French language, they will have three options:

  • Take a Standardized test
  • Meet the criteria set by a professional order; or
  • Complete at least three years of full-time studies in French at the secondary or post-secondary level

These new language requirements will also be imposed on spousal visa applications. Both the applicant and spouse needs to have minimum high intermediate French or Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level 7 or 8.
