Immigration to the Province of Quebec
You can immigrate to Canada through the French-speaking province of Quebec, which has its own special immigration system.
Quebec is the largest Canadian province with a population of more than 8 million people. It is called "the beautiful province" and "the Europe of North America" for its cultural diversity and beautiful nature. Quebec is the only Canadian province with French as the only official language. Quebec City, the capital of Quebec, has a population of 530,000, and Montreal, the largest city, has almost 2 million people.
Quebec has its own immigration system. The governments of Quebec and Canada have entered into a series of agreements under which Quebec establishes its own criteria for selecting immigrants.
There are several immigration programs in Quebec.
