    sorry to join in the conversation, but the term "land" was the old term for physically entering a Canadian port. That's why they still use the term "Landed Immigrant" or "Landed Permanent Resident". So yeah, the act of landing into Canada is a requirement to actually "activate" the PR status.

    Anyways, I just want to share that I applied to this QSW before (2010-2011) when I was still working in the US. I was told by my agent that I meet the minimum requirement for immigration through Quebec. I had the interview in New York. I didn't get the QSW sponsorship, though, coz I have no French language ability, which to me is a pretty fair decision. However, I was given a chance to learn French and submit an evidence of it and then I was told that my application will move forward.

    To make the long story short, I took the IELTS and ended up here in Australia. And I'm lovin' it here.

    I'm really surprised by the number of Filipino nurses now applying for Quebec. I think there were only two people here a year ago, including me, who were inquiring on how to become a nurse in Quebec.
    It's 2014 now, i just want to know if you are already there in quebec? And working as RN? I am planning to apply as QSW, but im not yet sure and determined cos im thinking about the language barrier. I only have a 1 year experience as a trainee in a tertiary hosp in the philippines, and i dont know if im qualified.

    I hope you get to see this msg. Thanks!

    Are you fluent in conversational/medical French? You will not be issued a full Quebec nursing license until you pass the stringent French language exam. The wages are night high. The locals are preferential to Francophiles. It is not an easy transition. Even in the English speaking facilities a strong command of French is required. (And the French language exam is mandatory regardless of where you work if you wish to be licensed & live/work in Quebec. Well respected & popular professionals in nursing, medicine, and dentistry have been stripped of their credentials for failing to pass the required French exams)

    If you truly not sure, why not explore other options. Your lack of desire to live and work in Quebec will be visible and only make your stay more difficult.

    yes..thank you for that opinion. Quebec was just one of my options and I'm eliminating it now. You were right about the lack of determination and desire. I never studied the french language and based on my researches, it was really difficult to learn. I think i just have to stick and focus on my first choice and give by best. Anyways, if plan A didn't work, i got 25 letters more. I just have to work hard and wait for His perfect plans. Thank you

    Your user name just makes North Americans suspicious. "Astronaut" is a term used to describe Asian migrants who will land anywhere to get residency and use it to fit there plan not the needs of the nation.

    Astronauts are notorious is BC's lower mainland and parts of Alberta. Get landed immigrant status, stay just long enough to get Citizenship papers and leave using the new passport.

    From the sounds of this thread, many are planning to "astronaut" into PQ and then scamper to greener pastures STAT.
