Quebec Skilled Workers Program

The Québec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP) is designed to target applicants who are most likely to be economically established in Québec and who have the specific intention to reside in Québec.

The QSWP will select candidates who have submitted an application through the ARRIMA portal and invite them to apply for a Certificat de Sélection du Québec (CSQ) based on the following factors:

  • Level of Education

  • Education Major

  • Work Experience

  • Age

  • Knowledge of French and English

  • Time spent in Québec

  • Having a validated job offer in Québec

  • Accompanying spouse or children

  • Financial self-sufficiency

Who gets selected?

The QSWP has different qualifying criteria than the federal skilled worker program as it is based on Québec’s cultural uniqueness. 

Additional points and priority selection is given to applicants with a Validated Job Offer. This is a separate application in which your employer confirms an offer of a permanent job to you.


French speaking candidates as well as those with families and children also have priority selection as they are more likely to integrate into Quebec society.

If you are currently working or studying in Quebec, you may be eligible for the PEQ (Programme de l'Expérience Québécoise) which is a faster way to obtain immigration through in the Quebec Skilled Workers program.
