Quebec Immigration – Language Proficiency

Language proficiency is an important selection factor in the Quebec points calculator under the Quebec Skilled worker program (QSWP).  There are 22 points that can be obtained under this selection factor. There are two languages available under this category, French and English. Since Quebec has the largest french speaking population in all of Canada so there are 16 points that are awarded to any candidate with the required proficiency in French. And 6 points to any candidate who has the required proficiency in English.
