The Quebec Simplified Processing List and its impact on international recruitment
Every year, on February 24, recruitment agencies and employers await the list of professions eligible for Quebec’s simplified processing. This sesame is a real treasure to simplify the task when it comes to immigration procedures for international recruitment. In this article, we will see what the simplified processing consists of and what changes have been made since last year.
What is the purpose of this list and what is the program?
First of all, let’s put it in context. This list first came out in 2012 and only included 44 trades. That’s pretty small when compared to the 181 trades found today! That said, 9 years later, we have to admit that the formula works well and has its advantages.
At the beginning, it was created to facilitate the immigration process for certain trades recognized by the Ministry of Employment as being in shortage of manpower and causing a drag on the economy. In other words, we simplify the immigration process for these recruitments, because we consider that it is urgent that these temporary foreign workers come to support the Quebec production.
However, we would like to specify that only specialized occupations are concerned, that is to say those in categories O, A and B.
