  1. It is difficult to understand the reasons that made the Government officials make this kind of list – it is obvious that, they simply do not understand the reality of immigration, the labor market and the situation in different countries.
    For example – to pass the TEFAQ test, someone has to have an university degree – this test is designed to test the language skills, but also the general culture of a person… I cannot imagine a ”Retail Butchery ” person with a secondary level studies, answering this test..
    Also, most immigrans to Canada, come from non-francophone countries(except a couple like Algeria, Maroc and Tunis) – China, India, Eastern Europe – so, tell me please, how could someone with a secondary level, or even with only a College degree, study french to an advanced level and pass with a good result the TCF, TEFAQ etc.?
    Also, as you see, the foreign university level graduates(who by definition are able to learn a language and to pass thoses tests) are excluded from those lists(there are some exceptions in the 6 points list).
    Also, there a lot of other barriers:
    For example, even if someone who did ”Welding and Fitting” and worked for years in Welding will not qualify, BECAUSE, in Quebec you have to study for 2 years to become Welder, while it takes 6 months in most countries….
    The autorities just do not know what they are doing…

  2. So if I have a Master Degree in computer sciences from United Kingdom, how much points will i get, 12-16 or 6?
    Help please

    1. Since it is a foreign degree, you would be awarded 6 points for the field of studies (if it was obtained in the last 5 years or if you have more than 12months of recent experience in the field ).

  3. I have a University level chemistry degree from Mexico and a Master of Science from USA. I will soon be a Doctor in Chemistry from USA. am I still get a good change if apply?. I have advance English, of course, and I could get my French brushed up enough to intermediate level in a few months.

    1. Having a bachelor degree in Chemistry you could apply as a Quebec Skilled Worker under group 2 (if it is a recent diploma or if you have recent experience in the field) only if you make the necessary number of points. If you would like to know your eligibility based on all factors and/or under other programs, please complete

  4. I am technical manager on h1b in USA. Have masters and have been working for past 8 years. Do I qualify for Quebec immigration. If not which province is better.

    1. Dear Ravi,
      There are many programs that may lead to immigration to Canada, based on your profile, work experience, family composition, previous travels, and other factors. I would suggest that you hire a personalized consultation with one of our regulated consultants. This consultation lasts one hour and has a fee of 150 Canadian dollars. In preparation I would kindly ask you to read and accept the Preliminary Consultation Agreement of our website and to fill out the free assessment. This free assessment will tell you if you can qualify under a regular program or not and propose other options in broad terms. In the reply you will receive you will be invited to take a more in-depth consultation.
      I look forward to hearing from you, best regards!
