Work in Quebec
Close to 50,000 immigrants relocate to Quebec each year to find good job opportunities and to enjoy a high standard of living in Canada.
Quebec is the largest province in Canada, has the second biggest population in the country and it has the second strongest economy of any Canadian province.
There are approximately 8.5 million people living in Quebec and the most populous cities in the province include Montreal (1.8 million), Quebec City (543,000), Laval (437,000), Gatineau (285,000), Sherbrooke (167,000) and Trois-Rivières (138,000).
Not only does Quebec have the second largest economy in Canada, but it also has one of the lowest unemployment rates of any Canadian province or territory (only 4.2% in May 2022).
This is much lower than Canada’s record low national unemployment rate of 5.1% (May 2022).
Several cities in Quebec have very low unemployment rates (May 2022) and there is a high demand for qualified workers, such as Gatineau (2.6 percent), Quebec City (2.8 percent), Sherbrooke (3.2 percent), and Trois-Rivières (3.2 percent).
Montreal, which has a low unemployment rate of just 4.8% (May 2022) also has many Canadian job opportunities.
The provincial economy of Quebec accounts for around 20.4% of Canada’s annual Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of $1.7 trillion USD.
Some of the major business sectors in Quebec include energy (particularly hydroelectric power), information technology, aerospace, electronics and optics-photonics, health technology, financial services, manufacturing, forestry, transportation, mining, and tourism.
Since Quebec is a mostly French-speaking province, having good French language skills is very important for immigrants to possess.
In regards to education, Quebec has some of the best universities in Canada (and the world), such as McGill University, the University of Montreal, Laval University, Concordia University, and the University of Sherbrooke.
