Quebec Immigration Minister Nadine Girault announced the official opening of the Permanent Immigration Pilot Program for Caregivers on March 31.

The pilot program, which will run for up to five years, will select up to 550 principal applicants who work as nursing aides each year. This program aims to help the province of Quebec cope with the serious shortage of healthcare workers.

The application window for the pilot program begins today, March 31, and ends October 31, 2021.

The application window for the immigration pilot program for Food processing workers officially opened on March 24. The program provides a pathway to permanent immigration for temporary foreign workers working in eligible jobs in the food processing industry.

The third immigration pilot program for skilled workers in artificial intelligence, information technology, and visual effects will open on April 22, 2021.

The province will issue Quebec Selection Certificates (CSQs) to a maximum of 1,650 principal applicants and their family members each year under the three pilot projects. All the applicants are required to work in the eligible sectors to be eligible for selection under this pilot program.

Quebec has announced the launch of these three permanent immigration pilot projects in 2020 to alleviate current and future skills shortages in sectors that will be essential to a strong post-COVID-19 economic recovery.
