QUEBEC — It will be easier for more qualified workers to immigrate to Quebec once the National Assembly adopts a sweeping three-part reform, Immigration Minister Kathleen Weil said on Wednesday.
The minister introduced Bill 77, a piece of legislation essentially dusting off Quebec’s 47-year-old immigration act. She said the bill constitutes the first part of her reform.
The Liberals will also address the ever-thorny question of immigration volumes in the spring. The number of immigrants Quebec is prepared to welcome next year is set at 50,000.
