According to Quebec’s Immigration Minister Jean Boulet, the province wants to recruit twice as many foreign workers in the coming year through its ‘Journees Quebec’ events as it did in 2021. On April 25, 2022, the Minister said in a press conference that “Quebec Days consists of 17 missions abroad to recruit skilled francophone workers, particularly in occupations in high demand by Quebec businesses facing labour shortages,” which makes the Government double the number of foreign workers. Thus, Quebec hopes to double the number of candidates from French-speaking and Francophile countries and invite 3,000 skilled workers in 2022.
