To be eligible for this program, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Education: You must have at least a high school diploma or an equivalent degree. Quebec's Ministry of Immigration recognizes certain foreign diplomas and degrees, but you may be required to have your educational credentials assessed by an approved agency to determine their equivalency to a Quebec diploma or degree.
  • Language proficiency: You must be proficient in French, which is the primary language spoken in Quebec. You will need to take a language test to demonstrate your proficiency in French. You may also need to demonstrate proficiency in English, which is the other official language of Canada.
  • Work experience: You must have at least one year of work experience in a skilled occupation in the last five years. Your work experience must be in a high-demand occupation in Quebec.
