Quebec Immigration

Immigration rules and procedures

Since April 1, 2014, new rules have been adopted regarding the maximum number of applications for a Certificat de sélection du Québec submitted by permanent workers, investors, entrepreneurs and self-employed workers that will be received by the Ministère. These new rules will be in effect from April 1, 2014 to March 31, 2015.

The rules pertaining to the maximum number of applications that will be received do not in any way reflect a change in Québec’s immigration objectives.

http://tourcanadacity.com/canada-city-pics/quebec-6.jpgThe heart of French Canada, where English is considered a distant second language, Quebec (pronounced 'KebEck') is unlike anywhere else in North America. The culture, architecture, music, religion and way of life is truly unique. 
Quebec is a vibrant multicultural province, often earning its recognition as the “Europe of North America”. Quebec is also famous for its vast forests, rolling hills and countless waterways. In fact, Quebec has over 1,000,000 lakes and waterways, giving it more fresh water than any other province.

http://www.hickerphoto.com/data/media/25/downtown-montreal_19234.jpgThe capital city is Quebec City (670 000). Quebec is also home to Canada’s second largest city, and the second largest French speaking city in the world, Montreal (3.6 million people). Other major cities are all located in proximity to the St. Lawrence river (which links Quebec and Montreal to the Atlantic Ocean) and include Trois-Rivieres, (48,419) Sherbrooke, (152,100), Chicoutimi-Jonquiere (162 500) and Hull (62,339). Since the end of World War II, more than 650,000 immigrants from over 80 countries have moved to Québec, particularly to the multicultural city of Montreal.

If that’s not possible, you should consult as many sources of information as possible.  An immigration project must be well planned and documented. The more you know about Québec, the better you will be able to make informed decisions and the best choices for you! Each year, Québec welcomes an average of some 45,000 immigrants from over 100 countries who actively participate in its economic, social and cultural development.  Québec is a French-speaking society, a democratic society based on the rule of law and made rich by its diversity. The Québec state and its institutions are secular. Québec welcomes immigrants from the four corners of the earth with their know-how, skills, language, culture and religion. Québec provides services to help them integrate and participate fully and completely in Québec society.

http://www.studyinmontreal.info/files/images/voyager-quebec.preview.jpgTo integrate into Québec society is to be prepared to know and respect its common values.
The many charms of Québec vary with the passage of the seasons. You’ll find:

  • wilderness areas and wide-open spaces;
  • vibrant cities and green spaces; plus
  • a diversified landscape comprised of fertile plains, age-old mountains and countless lakes and rivers.
