Quebec Introduces An Immigration Pathway

The Canadian province of Quebec has decided to thank the asylum seekers who have fought the coronavirus pandemic from the front lines and helped the province. Quebec has decided to introduce a pathway to permanent residence for “guardian angels” by providing them with an immigration pathway.

The immigration minister of Quebec, Nadine Girault, recently announced that the new immigration program would soon be ready for use. It will benefit all the asylum seekers who have provided health care assistance during the pandemic.

Requirements of the program

The Special Program for Asylum Seekers during COVID-19 will be available to individuals who are waiting for a decision about their refugee status and those who had their refugee claim denied. They should meet all the requirements of the program in order to apply.

The following criteria will be considered when judging a candidate’s eligibility.

  • Should have been employed in any eligible health-related job.
  • Has provided direct patient care in the period from March 13, 2020, to August 14, 2020, for a minimum of 120 hours;
  • Should have secured the equivalent of six months of full-time work experience in Quebec in a public or private health institution or any company related to in-home care
