The assessment of your application will also take into account other factors such as your age, the nature and duration of your professional training and your language skills.

The Quebec Government amends the requirements of this category from time to time. Changes to the requirements reflect the changes in the Canadian labour market and in the broader economy and society. It also reflects the changing demands on the part of prospective immigrants to Canada. Hence, we advise not to delay to apply for the Canadian immigration when you are eligible or not to delay to consult with us regarding your eligibility.
