On October 27, 2021, Quebec introduced its new Immigration Levels Plan for 2022. This plan also revealed the number of applicants that will be invited through Quebec Immigration’s Entrepreneur, Self-Employed and other 3 major immigration programs. Nandine Girault, minister of Ministre de l’Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’Intégration (MIFI) said that Quebec needs to improve its integration services to offer new immigrants better settlement in Quebec.
How Many Applicants Will Be Invited Through the Quebec Entrepreneur Program?
Quebec plans to invite 25 applicants through Stream 1 of the Entrepreneur program between November 1 and the end of next year. All applicants will be required to demonstrate proficiency in the French language by scoring a Level 7 on the Quebec scale of French language proficiency levels of adult immigrants. Stream 2 for applicants with a minimum net worth of at least $900,000 has been delayed this year. Stream 2 applicants must want to establish or acquire a business in Quebec and own at least 25% in a new business and 51% in an acquired business. See Quebec Immigration for its programs.
