The federal Canadian government has reached an agreement with the Quebec government to implement three key steps to assist Quebecer businesses who are suffering from the present labour shortage. What exactly does this new deal mean for foreign employees looking for jobs in Quebec?
Program for Temporary Foreign Workers
Certain restrictions connected to the Temporary Foreign Worker Program have been eased as part of these reforms. Notably, for certain industries, this agreement will allow for a 10-20% increase in the number of foreign workers allowed in a single workplace. Additionally, the Liste des professions admissibles au traitement simplifié – a list that enumerates the occupations eligible for the Temporary Foreign Worker Program – will be expanded to include some low-specialization and high-demand professions. These regulations will be in effect until December 31, 2023.
Transitory Open work permit
The federal government has agreed, at the request of the Quebec government, to allow certain temporary foreign workers already residing in Quebec to work in whatever job they want until they are granted permanent status on August 31, 2021. To be eligible for such a permit, the worker must have a Certificat de Sélection du Québec (CSQ) in the category of skilled workers and an acknowledgment of receipt for their permanent resident application. This permission will be valid for an initial duration of 24 months, with the option to extend it for another 12 months.
Program for International Mobility (IMPP)
Within the International Mobility Program, a new temporary programme will be introduced. Certain CSQ holders are eligible to receive 7,000 work permits per year under the scheme. The permissions will relieve the applicant from having to complete a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). The purpose of the IMPP is to allow for a quicker arrival in Quebec and the possibility to work there.
We have enrolled ourselves with Winny for Canada Immigration(was referred by a friend) and we are very happy with the service provided by them. We are yet to complete the entire service with them but until now the staff has proven to be knowledgeable, patient, cooperative and helpful. We hope to complete our further immigration procedure in the same way.
Good luck and keep going!
A great place for the overseas solutions, had a conversation with Seema Bhavsar for my Canada visa process, and she guided with all the process and even she explained with very easy methods, earlier i was not sure what to do but after Seema guidance i have started the process. A special thanks to Seema and her team Winny Immigration.
Finding an immigration consultant is no piece of cake but Winny is surely cherry on that cake!! I visited Winny’s Ahmedabad office and it proved to be an one stop solution for everything. Ms. Monika Jha is an amazing counsellor. She cleared all our doubts, gave excellent guidance and regularly checked upon us during the process. The case officers, teaching faculty, counsellors and the admin team at Winny are a 10/10 recommend for immigration.
I am from Ahmedabad and planning to immigrate canada. After inquiry in so many consultancy i found Winny has good transparency. in first inquiry they cleared all my doubt and tell me what is process and how much it take times. Most important is that all process is online. it save time for working professional.
One of the best consulting firms I’ve come across is very transparent and has high-skilled employees. From the last two years, I’ve been planning to go through the Canadian PR process and have visited many consultancy firms for information. Each one gave me different information, but one of my friends suggested Winny Immigration because Winny is an authorized consultant through the Canadian Government. I visited Winny and decided to start my journey with Winny Immigration. The experience and support I received from them was great.
