According to Quebec Immigration Minister Jean Boulet, the Government of Quebec will add Haiti to the list of high-priority countries to attract more nurses and address the severe labour shortages in the province. Although in February 2022, the Government of Quebec announced an investment of $65 million in an initiative to recruit 1,000 foreign-trained nurses from certain francophone countries over the next two years, Haiti, being one of the largest francophone nations, was not on the list of eligible countries.
