Quebec announces the plan to reform the Quebec Experience Program (PEQ). The main reason for reforming the program is a better integration into the labour market. The renewed PEQ will have four objectives:
- Better integration of the immigrants into the labour market,
- More efficient selection to meet the needs of the labour market,
- Competence in French which facilitates integration and
- Reinforced program integrity.
In addition, Quebec intends to launch two immigration pilots. One will target nurse’s aides and the other will be developed for various tech workers.
