  • Updated List

 

The Quebec government recently updated the list of eligible occupations under the Labour Impact Market Assessment process. This list will be in effect for the current year, after which a new list is published. 

List of Occupations

The Ministry of Immigration in Quebec provides a list of occupations, updated annually.

Quebec employers do not have to advertise a vacancy before hiring a foreign professional for these occupations.

Like the previous list, the latest list of occupations is based on the Quebec labour market's latest needs and covers the entire province.

Changes in the List

While many occupations in the previous list stayed on the new one, there have been some new additions and removals.

The new additions include home building & renovation managers, telecom carriers managers, computers and information systems managers, geoscientists, oceanographers and more.

Scores of job categories that were in demand last year have been removed this year as the second wave of Covid-19 continues to dampen business activities in the land of the maple leaf.

The change is effective immediately, and the Quebec employers are given 30 days to review applications submitted under the previous list.

History of the List of Occupations

Emploi-Quebec, a placement agency, established the List of Occupations in collaboration with the Ministry of Immigration, Fenchisation and Integration.

It is based on the National Occupation Classification (NOC) 2016, used by the Express Entry System for all its programs.
