The government of Quebec announced today that it will extend the duration of the current Quebec Skilled Worker (QSW) program. The QSW program, initially scheduled to accept applications until March 31, 2013, will continue accepting applications until July 31, 2013.

This extension is particularly beneficial to eligible applicants who are working towards completing their applications before the current QSW program undergoes any changes.

July 31 will also mark the end of a temporary ban on new applications being accepted under the Quebec Investor and Quebec Entrepreneur and Self-Employed programs. The government of Quebec has not yet announced details about the future of these programs.
