On May 24, 2022, Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), announced the new International Mobility Program Plus (IMP+) for Quebec-selected skilled workers. It is a new open work permit option for foreign nationals selected by the province who reside overseas or in a province other than Quebec. Until the Federal Government and Quebec signed the agreement, work permit applications from Quebec Selection Certificate (CSQ) holders outside Quebec will be processed under R205(a). Foreign nationals cannot apply for an open work permit under this category at entry.
