After being faced with a technical problem, many applications under Quebec Skilled Worker Program got selected, although, the program was closed. The incident took place on 1st of April. Quebec’s Skilled Worker Program (QSWP) is a very popular program. The candidates eligible to submit applications under this program are:
a) Those who are having a Job offer from an employer operating in Quebec
b) Those who are living in Quebec as temporary residents and are ‘authorised’ to submit an application under QSWP
However, the program is quota based and only accepts applications once in a blue moon.
This was not even the time period in which the quota usually gets open. Through rising of suspicions, many applicants still submitted their applications.
Quebec on realising this technical glitch, announced that these applications will be cancelled and 100% refund will be initiated to candidates.
The last intake by Quebec was in August 2016.
Quebec has also announced that soon they will be opening the quota and acceptance of 5,000 new applications can be expected between timeperiodsstarting from 1st April, 2018 to 15th August, 2018.
