Immigrating under Quebec’s RSWP

Launched back in 1994, Quebec’s Regular Skilled Worker Program (RSWP) was established for candidates wanting to permanently work and live in Quebec.

Just as in Express Entry’s Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), candidates wanting to apply under Quebec’s RSWP must demonstrate their intent in moving to Quebec by completing an Expression of Interest (EOI) form through an online portal.

The Minister of Immigration, Francization, and Integration (Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’Intégration) regularly selects candidates from the pool – and invites them for permanent selection in a subsequent invitation round.
