Immigration lawyer’s demands court order for Quebec’s pending 18,000 skilled worker applications
An immigration lawyers’ group is demanding court order that would force Quebec’s government to continue processing backlogged applications to the Quebec Skilled Worker Program.
The province’s Coalition Quebec government proposed terminating the backlog of around 18,000 pending applications on February 7. The legislation was to take effect immediately but the immigration lawyers are demanding to process the backlog applications first.
In a request filed on Wednesday, the association says government’s proposal is completely illegal and would have devastating consequences for affected applicants.
It destroys the ability of these individuals, many of whom are already at the final stage of the process of selection to realize their plans for a new life in Canada. The request is made to Immigration Minister to issue decisions on the pending applications and does not have the discretionary authority to refuse to do so.
The immigration lawyer is asking Quebec’s Superior court to order the government to continue processing applications for a Quebec Selection Certificate ‘at the usual pace’ until the legislation is passed by Quebec’s National Assembly.
The request reads, “With each passing day, dozens of applications for a CSQ that could have been processed are not.” It also reads, “The situation is clearly urgent” and “These 18,000 applications represent tens of thousands of individuals.”
The proposal is widely criticized as unfair given the length of time that many applicants have been waiting for a decision on their file and the fact thousands are already living and working or studying in Quebec as temporary residents.
The applications that the government wants to terminate are the paper-based applications on a first-come, first served basis.
Quebec Provincial Nomination Program is processed differently than other Canadian Immigration Programs. There are different Canada PR programs that an applicant may consider for applying permanent residency of Canada.

This is in regard to my journey with Aptechvisa Services. I have experienced here were so far better and I already recommended my multiple friends to them because I can trust their words. I got Aptech visa reference through one of my best friend and today I am in Canada and this all happened just because of Aptech visa.
This is a time to appreciate the performance of Aptech visa. True, Genuine, professional and what not, this is the immigration consultancy to whom we can trust blindly. Due to my age factor I did not score well but more than 400 and this made myself eligible for Ontario and my consultant worked hard in my profile and made it true.
Hope you all are reading my message with Great Spirit. I would rate Aptech 10 out of 10. In between of my application, I have faced a lot of issues in arranging documents but everything went well and there was a continuous support of Aptech which motivated me everything and today I am in Canada, Ontario. Thank you Aptech
Aptech is the best immigration consultant and the staff is of very friendly nature. Since I was there in US, so it was very difficult for me to coordinate with them but they always answered my queries very promptly and meantime, my father was there every time to support me. With the help of Aptech and my father, we got our PR visa for Canada. I am feeling so lucky to be associated with Aptech.
Here we would like to Thank you Aptech visa for all the assistance and help which we have received in our Canada PR visa application throughout the process. They helped me a lot in every manner and it would be an honor if I would say something good about Aptech visa. You guys are really hard working.
Mine was the wonderful journey with Aptech throughout the process. I enjoyed working with them and I would really recommend Aptech to all of you. I have also given a lot of references and in future also will try to refer Aptech to all my known and relatives.
My son has applied for PR visa through Aptech and then he decided to apply for my tourist visa from Aptech only and you can’t believe that I got my visa within 24 hours after applying for the online application. I would really appreciate the work out done by Aptech Global in our applications. Keep working hard guys.
Due to some corrections in my passport, it took more time for me to get the visa but Aptech handled all the things very precisely and smartly. They keep on coordinating with High Commission for my application and did all the conversation on time. Thank you for supporting me.
