Quebec province in Canada has unfurled a new list about new areas of training in expectation of the soon-to-arrive Quebec Skilled Worker Program application cycle. The new list about the areas of training was ratified from 26 January, 2015. This program is a form of Canadian immigration based on points. Points are allocated for essential human factors such as the candidate’s area of training.
In line with the changes in the labor market of the province of Quebec, the government here revamps its points for each area of specialization. There is good news for people who are holding degrees in the areas of Computer Engineering, Translation, Financial Operations, Computer Science, Accounting and Banking as these are some of the areas of expertise that will be allotted more points than was previously the case.
A maximum of 16 points can be awarded for each area of training. This would comprise almost 30% of a potential candidate’s total points. As per the most recent changes to the QSWP, a single applicant has to secure 49 points while along with the spouse; 57 points need to be obtained.
The present norms governing the program will only hold true till 31 March, 2015. The limit of 6,500 applications was filled within a mere four months. However, individuals with a valid employment offer letter from a Quebec employer may still apply for QSWP. New rules and regulations from the Quebec government are soon to be announced. The date for this has been set as 1 April, 2015.
