Quebec passes legislation cancelling thousands of pending skilled worker applications
The Government of Quebec’s questionable migration changes were passed by the area’s National Assembly throughout the end of the week, authoritatively dropping around 16,000 natural applications to the Quebec Skilled Worker Program.
Known as Bill 9, the enactment was presented in February and proposed the quick end of pending applications to the program submitted before August 2, 2018.

Bill 9 was passed by a vote of 62 to 42 following 19 hours.
The objective of the enactment, the legislature says, is guaranteeing that foreigners to Quebec are better coordinated and thusly better prepared to prevail in Quebec’s work advertise.
“We are changing the movement framework in the open premium, since we need to ensure that we have migration that is attached to the requirements of the work advertise,” Quebec’s Immigration Minister, Simon Jolin-Barrette, said before the vote.
