Breaking NEWS ... The Minister of Immigration in Quebec finally reveals the End of First Come First Serve Basis

The Minister of Immigration of Quebec, Kathleen Weil, today announced the introduction of a new selection system called economic immigrants. Beginning in 2017, the requests will not be processed in order of receipt but sorted according to labor market needs.
People who wish to immigrate to Canada will first need to complete a "statement of interest" online. Only candidates who best meet the needs of Quebec will be invited to file a formal application entitled "Quebec selection certificate."
"It's a system that allows flexibility and speed because the labor market is changing and changing fast. The system of first come first served is a very heavy system. And in an immigration competitive world, it does not work. We already see that Canada, Australia, and New Zealand already have, "said Minister Weil at a press conference to present with great fanfare the new Quebec immigration policy, participation, and inclusion.
With this new selection process, the minister believes she can handle requests within 3 to 6 months. Currently, the deadlines are 1 to 4 years.
The so-called economic immigration does not include people who move to Quebec for humanitarian reasons.
Between 1990 and 1994, economic immigrants represented 49.1% of newcomers. Between 2010 and 2014, it jumped to 69.2%.
The areas prioritized job under the new selection process will be modulated "continuous" and could vary by region.
The organization cites the Montreal International information technology, gaming, and visual effects, as areas that could be prioritized in the short term because of the shortage of qualified staff.
The new immigration policy also aims to facilitate the transition from temporary to the permanent status of foreign students and temporary workers.
Immigrants who have training in a profession regulated such as lawyers, engineers, doctors, nurses or pharmacists represent 20% of newcomers. Some professional bodies are often seen as a major obstacle to recognition of the skills of skilled workers from abroad.
The Minister says she wants to work with professional bodies and believes that in recent years, much progress has been made to recognize diplomas or parry training obtained abroad. She, however, remained vague on the solutions needed to address the problems that persist.
