Quota Reached For Quebec Skilled Worker Applications Submitted By Post
Posted on November 13, 2015
The Quebec government announced today the quota of 3500 for applications submitted by post under the Quebec skilled worker program (QSWP), was reached. The program capped out in only 5 days. This follows the launch of the 2015/16 application session on November 4th, with Quebec planning to receive 6300 applications. The period of reception for applications will operate under two systems.
Beginning November 4th 2015 – a maximum of 3500 applications submitted by post has been received.
Beginning January 18, 2016 – a maximum of 2800 applications will be accepted via the internet.
If previous indicators are a valid measure, Quebec’s quota of 6300 applications under the QSWP, will fill quickly. However applicants with a valid job offer, previous work experience in Quebec or having completed a valid period of study in Quebec may also qualify under the Quebec Experience Program and would not be subject to the skilled worker program quota.
