The Quebec Regular Skilled Worker Program (RSWP) is a points-based immigration system that allows candidates to apply for permanent residency in Quebec. The RSWP draws are carried out in 6 easy steps.
STEP 1 - Eligibility: Candidates must first check their eligibility to apply for the Quebec RSWP. This includes meeting the eligibility criteria, such as age, education, work experience, language proficiency, and other factors.
STEP 2 - Expression of Interest: Candidates must submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the Quebec Ministry of Immigration, Francisation, and Integration (MIFI) to be considered for the program. The EOI serves as an indication of interest and includes information about the candidate's education, work experience, language skills, and other factors.
STEP 3 - Points Calculation: MIFI calculates points for each candidate based on their EOI submission. The points in the Quebec points calculator are awarded for factors such as education, work experience, language proficiency, age, and other factors. The highest-scoring candidates are invited to apply for permanent residency in Quebec.
STEP 4 - Draws: MIFI conducts periodic draws to select the highest-scoring candidates from the pool of EOI submissions. Candidates who are selected in the draws are invited to submit a formal application for permanent residency in Quebec.
STEP 5 - Invitation to Apply: Candidates who are invited to apply for permanent residency must submit a formal application and provide documentation to support their eligibility. The application is then reviewed by MIFI, and if approved, the candidate is issued a Quebec Selection Certificate (CSQ).
STEP 6 - Federal Application: Candidates who receive a CSQ can then apply for Canada PR to the Government of Canada's immigration authority, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). IRCC conducts a final review of the candidate's application before issuing permanent residency status.
The Quebec RSWP draws work by assessing candidates' eligibility and awarding points based on various factors. The highest-scoring candidates are selected through periodic draws and invited to apply for permanent residency in Quebec.
Don't wait. The time will never be just right.
