Jean Boulet comments

The Immigration Minister of Quebec, Jean Boulet, stated that the increase in immigration to Quebec is an effort to cover the losses in immigration numbers due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

There was a fall in the number of immigrants in Quebec in 2020, that fell short by 18,775 in that year. The immigration target for 2020 was 44,000.

“The limit on the number of immigrants allowed, based on the multi-year plan, limits new permanent residents to Quebec to 52,500 per year,”
Jean Boulet – Minister of immigration, Quebec

A rise in the number of TFW migrants

With the boost in Quebec immigration, the province is expecting an increase in TFWs (Temporary Foreign Workers). From the mere 30,000 who worked in Quebec in 2021, the aim now is to reach 80,000 immigrants every year.

“With the simplified applications and the addition of several occupations, trades that will benefit from fast-track processing for temporary immigration, there will certainly be more (temporary foreign workers in Quebec) to meet the demands of Quebec businesses,”
Jean Boulet – Minister of immigration, Quebec
