What steps are included in the Quebec Skilled Worker Programme application process?

Get a Quebec Selection Certificate (CSQ) as the first step.
The Quebec Selection Certificate (CSQ) is required as the first step in the application process for permanent residency in Quebec. This important document certifies that the applicant satisfies all conditions and requirements for the Quebec Skilled Worker Programme (QSWP). It also means that Quebec has decided to accept the applicant as a permanent resident of its territory.

Step 2: Request a visa for permanent residence in Canada

Candidates who successfully complete the CSQ can then apply to Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for a visa allowing them to live permanently in Canada. Applicants must submit their applications and their CSQ certificate in order to start this process.
