Quebec Immigration – Level of Education

Education level plays a very vital role in the assessment of a candidate’s eligibility as per the points calculator under the Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP) for the Quebec immigration selection. The education level falls under the category of the training factor that contains 26 points maximum.
