Quebec is a popular destination for immigrants as it is the largest province in Canada. There are abundant work opportunities available along with support options for newcomers like government-subsidized education, free language classes and universal healthcare. More than 50,000 newcomers are given the chance to become permanent residents of Quebec every year.
Being the largest province of Canada, Quebec has more control over its immigration policies than the other provinces. Quebec is the exception because it does not come under the Provincial Nomination Programs for immigration like the other provinces.
Location of Quebec
It is located in Eastern Canada. Quebec is surrounded by Ontario, James Bay and Hudson Bay to the west; Hudson Strait and Ungava Bay to the north; Gulf of Saint Lawrence and province of Newfoundland and Labrador to the east; province of New Brunswick to the south.
The official language of Quebec is French because it was originally a French colony. The QSW program does not require minimum language test scores but many other immigration programs of Quebec and Canada require a high score in the TEF or Test D’Evaluation de Francais or IELTS or International English Language Testing System.
