The Province of Quebec is one of the largest provinces in Canada, and it is primarily a French-speaking area. Quebec’s continual economic expansion is one of the reasons it is a favourite location for immigrants.
If you are one of the individuals planning to immigrate to Quebec, there are various ways to immigrate to Quebec such as:
- Quebec Skilled Worker Program
- Quebec Business Program
- Quebec Experience Program
Each of the aforementioned programs is provided by the Quebec Immigration authorities and is designed to meet the diverse needs of candidates. Apart from that, each of these applications has its own set of specifications and processing time.
Each program’s processing time varies depending on the sort of application you’ve submitted. However, according to the IRCC’s official website, if you apply for an application online, such as by email, the processing period for your application begins when it is received in the mailroom. If you apply by courier, however, the processing time begins when the authorities receive the application. As a result, if you submit your application through courier, it is critical to track them and ensure that the authorities receive them on time.
