The province of Quebec is eliminating outstanding applications for Quebec Skilled Worker Program. The applications submitted prior to August 2, 2018 are eliminated. This means that applications submitted before this date that are yet to be approved, refused or rejected will clear the current backlog of around 18,000 applications and refund the government processing fee.
Discarding off backlog of Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP) is one of numerous proposals under new immigration bill tabled Thursday, February 7, by Quebec’s new Coalition Avenir Quebec Government.
The other proposal includes the introductory changes to Quebec Immigration Act that emphasize an immigrant’s “responsibility” to learn Quebec values and French. The goal of bringing about the changes is to ensure that immigrants to Quebec are better integrated and therefore better equipped to succeed in Quebec labour market.
Quebec Immigrants must match according to the Actual labour needs
Quebec Immigration Minister, Simon Jolin Barette said eliminating the QSWP backlog is essential to this effort. By doing this, the ministry would be able to tailor immigration to actual labour needs in a better way and will cut application processing times from 36 months to six.
The Minister noted that the backlogged applications were submitted when the QSWP operated on a first-come, first-served basis which he said was not in touch with Quebec’s workforce needs. This approach was no longer in use when Quebec shifted the application process to more merit focused Expression of Interest model.
Under this approach, foreign workers register a profile with Quebec’s Immigration Ministry (MDI) that mentions their education, training, work experience and language abilities. MDI then invited applicants to apply for a Quebec’s Selection Certificate based on a variety of considerations including labour needs in outlying regions of the province where worker shortages are more acute.

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.
