  • NOC 0312: Registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses;
  • NOC 3233: Licensed practical nurses;

QRSW Program

The Quebec Regular Skilled Worker Program is an immigration program by the provincial government of Quebec that targets candidates with work experience and who can benefit their economy.

The candidates who wish to apply under this program must submit their Express of Interest (EOI) profile and submit their details in the online form.

This contains details of the candidate’s work experience, the field of study/training, and language proficiency. MIFI then selects candidates from the Arrima pool to apply for permanent residence.
