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.
My overall experience with Winny is excellent. The team is very helpful and provides their clients accurate information which can help them to achieve their goals.
After lot of research, finally We decided to start our PR process for Canada with the help of Winny Immigration. Firstly, Ms Suhani from Surat branch made us understand the entire PR process. Secondly, We were assigned a Case Officer Ms. Norin Shaikh from Ahmedabad head office within a week. She guided us right from the start of the process. She helped us prepare the entire documentation. Ultimately within 3 months, We were able to submit our Express Entry profile in September 2021. It has been a very smooth experience till now with Winny Immigration.
This is one of the best Immigration consultant that I have ever seen. They help me to find best way about Immigration, especially Ms. Falguni Rayththa who is a experienced case officer and she did all process with great responsibility as well.
Thank you WINNY team
I have been tutored for IELTS under the guidance of Kalgi ma’am at Winny Coaching. She has been very patient throughout in both online and offline classes and the mock tests and practice conversation also helped a great deal to ace our real tests.
I highly recommend Winny Immigrations along with my tutor Kalgi Trivedi.
