Quebec Immigration News

According to the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB), most regions in Quebec will likely to have shortages of workers in the years to come. The only way this would not happen is if only the government encourages the expansion of provincial immigration targets.

This is so serious, the report has it that in March 2023, it is projected that there will be yearly decline of 18,000 immigrants in Quebec city.

However, I find it ridiculous that the Quebec government Coalition Avenir imposed a strict law that would require immigrants to be heavily fluent on French.

It is a sad thing seriously because this new requirements will make it harder for Quebec employers to attract top International workers, especially from English-speaking countries.

The CFIB has proposed that luring immigrants away from the immigration hub, can be made possible if paperwork is reduced, housing becomes cheaper, make financial aid available for newcomers and increase services like childcare for families. Also, making it very easy for foreign workers to get Canada citizenship, especially those who want to settle in Quebec city.

When you move to a new country for work, it is usually an exciting and life-changing experience. You would be exposed to opportunities that would lead to personal and professional growth.
