Québec is looking for talent

The province of Québec enjoys a strong economy and offers a great quality of life. However, because of demographic considerations, it must rely on immigration to keep its economy growing.

Each year, Québec welcomes workers from over a hundred countries who bring with them their unique expertise and many H-1B visa holders have the specialized skills that Québec employers are looking for.

Coming to Québec is about moving forward: a place where the job market is offering great opportunities and where the transition from temporary to permanent resident status is easily accessible.

Industries with the highest hiring demand in Québec include:

  • Information technology, telecommunications and video games technology
  • Engineering
