Quebec has a special agreement on immigration with the Government of Canada. The province has its own rules for choosing immigrants who will adapt well to living there.
To immigrate to Canada as a Quebec-selected skilled worker, you must apply in the following 2 stages:
Apply to the Government of Quebec for a Quebec Selection Certificate (CSQ).
The Province of Quebec will assess you, using its own rules.
The certificate shows that the Province of Quebec has accepted you as an immigrant.
Like the Federal system, Quebec uses a points-based system to assess potential immigrants. To qualify for a Quebec Selection Certificate, single applicants must score at least 60 points from the ten selection criteria, while an applicant with a spouse or common-law partner must score a minimum of 68 points.
