(viii) Quebec Skilled Worker Program 2020?

Quebec is one of the ten provinces of Canada and is the second-most populous province after Ontario. It has a predominantly French-speaking population, with French being the sole provincial official language. Quebec has an advanced, market-based, and open economy. The economy of the province has undergone a tremendous change over the last decade, with the firm ground in the knowledge economy. It has one of the highest growth rates of gross domestic product (GDP) in Canada.

To keep pace with the growing economy in the province, Quebec has to fill the gap of skilled individuals in the labor market. Quebec has a special agreement with the Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC) that will allow them to nominate the immigrants with the required skills and work experience to live in the province as a permanent resident. This immigration pathway for skilled immigrants is known as the Quebec Skilled Worker Program.
