Quebec government fails for suspending 18,000 Quebec Skilled Worker Program applications

Posted on February 26, 2019

The arguments raised for processing pending applications by the group of Quebec immigration lawyers are granted by the Quebec Superior Court Judge, Justice Frédéric Bachand. The 18,000 applications of the provincial government which were subjected for backlog are now continued for processing under the Quebec Skilled Worker Program.

Under a Bill 9 named legislation which was tabled on February 7th, the Coalition Avenir Quebec government proposed for terminating 18,000 Quebec Skilled Worker program applications immediately; and a group of lawyers protested this as “completely illegal.”

Now, the government sought these arguments and ordered for supporting them by processing the 18,000 applications.

The President of the Association Québécoise des avocats et advocates en droit de l’ immigration (AQAADI) stated, “This is great news and great news for Quebec society.”

Seeun Park is one of the affected people from the 18,000 applications, and the AQAADI raised the injunction request on her name for justice.

However, the AQAADI ‘s injunction request, which was also termed as “urgent” has made the court to order the government for processing the CSW application in the same regular manner until the National Assembly of Quebec passes the Bill 9 legislation.

The statements by the government for creating a profile under the new online Expression of interest system was widely opposed by many associations ranging from the Canadian Bar Association to the Conseil du Patronat.
