Quebec to add 7000 immigrants in 2021


Quebec to add 7000 immigrants in 2021

Canada has one of the structured and finest immigration policies where the immigration plans are released for three years, and new immigration targets are already set. All the provinces stick to the plan and meet the labor market demand as per the target immigrations set by the IRCC (Immigration Refugee Citizenship Canada).

As part of the immigration targets for the coming 2021, Quebec has announced the plan, d’immigration du Quebec. The federal government has designed this plan in collaboration with the Quebec government as the province runs its immigration program: the Quebec Immigration program.

The road map for the year 2021 is laid out, and 7000 immigrants are invited for the year 2021 in Quebec. There were several encumbrances caused in 2020 due to COVID 19 pandemic situation travel restrictions. In the coming year 2021, it is expected that the Quebec province will invite between 44,500 to 47,500 immigrants. The target is enhanced as the expected immigration in 2020 was 44,500, but they were reduced to 30,500 in the crises.

Out of the target immigrations set for 2021, most were expected to be from the economic immigration category. Thus, the Quebec government is planning to target 62 percent economic migration, and the range is expected to be between 27,500 to 29,300. The breakup of the invitations is as below:

  • Skilled Workers – Between 19,400 and 22,400
  • Business Immigrations – Between 1500 and 2300
  • Other economic immigrants – Between 400 to 600
  • Refugee – Between 4400 and 4700
  • Other immigrants – Between 800 and 1200


The other immigrants are also expected to add another 10,200 permanent residents in 2021 in the categories of family sponsorship, refugee, and other immigration programs. The applications that have the waiting status for 2021 and are currently under processing are also included in the immigration number calculation. The time taken to process all these applications is also factored in while arriving at the projected figures.

Quebec province is the second-largest in Canada, and it has its immigration system. It doesn’t follow the rules and guidelines laid down by the federal government for all the provinces. It aims to focus on the francophone culture, and there is an added advantage for the French-speaking candidates as Quebec is the baton holder for the French culture in Canada. It promotes a strong economy and family unification idea and is highly protective of humanitarian support. Thus, a lot of refugees have also settled in Quebec.
