Quebec Online Application System For Skilled Worker Program
Posted on May 8, 2015
Amended checklist requirements will simplify application procedure The government of Quebec has announced that by October 1, 2015, a new online tool will be available for applicants for Canadian immigration through the Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP). This tool will allow eligible candidates to complete and submit an application online.
From the next period for receipt of applications, which will be announced in the near future, candidates for the program will use this secure online space in order to make their application and monitor its processing in real time. The exact details of how this online system will operate have not yet been disclosed.
Moreover, the document checklist for the QSWP has been amended, as has the document checklist for the Programme de l’expérience québécoise (Quebec Experience Program, or PEQ). Changes made to the document checklists come into effect immediately on all applications on which no final decision has been made.
The amended checklist for the QSWP places less stringent requirements on applicants with regard to the submission of certain documents. Quebec has streamlined its documentation requirements, with fewer certified true copies of documents required, and more documents being able to be submitted in photocopied form.
Documents that until now had to be submitted as certified true copies, but may now be submitted as photocopies, include birth certificates, marital status certificates, work experience documentation, and results of language tests. Documents that are no longer required include family booklets (if applicable) and work payslips from the candidate’s current employer.
A number of important documents are still required in the form of a certified true copy. These include tax documents, education records such as diplomas, and documents pertaining to any internship agreements, if applicable.
In recent weeks and months, CICnews has covered stories on the areas of training list for the QSWP and the allocation of 6,300 spaces for the upcoming application cycle for the program.
