The Quebec Skilled Worker (QSW) program now uses the Expression of Interest (EOI) classification system for its applicant selection. The applicants with the best QSW points are the ones invited to submit their applications to Quebec.
There aren’t a lot of options better than Quebec. You don’t need to demonstrate any settlement funds to the government when applying under QSW unlike what is obtainable in Express Entry, and you can send your IELTS months after submitting your file. This means, you don’t have to delay your application till your IELTS is ready.
When it comes to language test for applicants, the Quebec program is a lot more flexible and doesn’t require any minimum score unlike Express Entry. The Skilled Worker program is point-based, however, which means you still need to meet the minimum point requirement to apply. A high language score will boost your score and your chances of getting in.
After meeting all the experience requirements, the applicants will be graded through a point system to assess their eligibility for the Self-Employed Visa.
Here are the general requirements for the QSW program:
You may not need the results of your language test to apply, note however that you will still need to present them before you’re granted a visa.
Both IELTS and academic results are accepted by Immigration Quebec as proof of English proficiency, and DELF or TEF results for native French speakers.
