According to the new regulations, the Ministry of Immigration (MIDI) of Quebec might issue invitations to apply (ITAs), with a view to applying for the Quebec Selection Certificate (CSQ) or Certificat de sélection du Québec. Only highest scoring candidates will receive this certificate depending on priority or selection criteria.
In addition, the revisions made to Quebec’s Immigration Act state that the issuance of invitations to apply (ITAs) largely depends on the ability of a foreign national to stay or settle in Quebec successfully. Moreover, another criterion relates to the region in Québec, where a candidate is currently residing. This is so as the criteria for a country or region under an international commitment or one affected by a humanitarian crisis may differ slightly.
Those candidates who receive an ITA for the CSQ and are eligible to submit an application must fulfill the requirement of obtaining passing scores. This is an essential requirement for the program depending on the QSWP Points Grid.
