Demonstrators denounce changes to QC Experience Program impacting international students

June 30, 2020

Protestors gathered across Québec this past weekend to denounce upcoming reforms to the Québec Experience Program, an initiative that fast-tracks immigration for foreign students and temporary workers. Demonstrators argue that the reforms compromise the future of international students by requiring eligible applicants to acquire two years of full-time work for those with a professional diploma, and one year for those who complete a university degree or technical diploma. The reforms allow the work experience to be unrelated to a field of study, but they exclude certain professions, such as waiter, cashier, or agricultural worker. CBC | Medicine Hat News (QC)
