Quebec has a special agreement with the Government of Canada on immigration through Quebec Skilled Worker visa. The province has its own rules for choosing immigrants who will adapt well to living there.
The Quebec immigration selection system for Quebec Skilled Workers is designed to indicate which applicants are likely to become economically established upon immigration to Quebec
Skilled Worker (Professional) applicants who intend to reside in Montreal or in another city or region within the province of Quebec are assessed under a different system than applicants who wish to settle elsewhere in Canada. This is done through what the government of Quebec calls its ‘Regular Skilled Worker Program’, otherwise known as the Quebec Skilled Worker visa (QSWP).
Note: All the disputes and backlogs of the previous QSWP applications which were based on first come first serve basis and on point-based basis has been sorted out as per the CIC news which came on 17th June 2019.
The government also announces that from now onwards application only can be considered for Quebec through Arrima Portal only and also this is also beneficial for the Employers of the Quebec as well, as they can fill them vacant positions by picking up the candidates through Arrima as per the CIC news.
