Few new measures have been introduced by the Government of Quebec
According to the professionals, Quebec is the only province that is attracting the lowest number of immigrants in the years. At the same, the unemployment rate of this province is an all-time low. There is no doubt in the fact that the fertility rate is continually declining. There are a few demographic changes out there that are creating an impact on the ability of employers to find out the employees.
To address this specific situation, the Government of the Quebec has already taken a variety of important steps so they will be able to make it a little bit easier for every employer to fill the several positions by making some important changes in the overall hiring process & trimming down overall processing time for the applications of immigration via several programs.
Recently a specific agreement between the Canadian federal government & Quebec Immigration Ministry allows the employers of Quebec to hire almost 20% of the temporary foreign workers according to the worker place. Previously, they had this specific percentage at 10%.
They have also launched a new program that is known as International Mobility Program Plus (IMP+) so they will able to accelerate the overall arrival of the foreign workers of Quebec that are selected by the Quebec who haven’t got the permanent residence from the Government of Quebec & who meet the requirements of labour.
There are almost 7000 people every year who have already been selected by the province of Quebec as skilled workers; however, they are also eligible to get the open work permit & they will be able to initiate their job in Quebec.
