Hiring in Quebec
Quebec establishes its own immigration requirements and selects immigrants who will adapt well to living in Quebec. Employers should be aware that internationally trained workers who want to come to Canada as Quebec-selected skilled workers must first apply to the Quebec government for a certificate of selection (Certificat de sélection du Québec).
