Ineligible employment sectors

If you apply to the Temporary Foreign Worker stream, you cannot be selected if your work experience has been acquired or if you hold a job in one of the ineligible sectors. 

If you apply to the Québec Graduates stream, you cannot be selected if you intend to work in one of the ineligible employment sectors. 

Ineligible employment sectors are: 

  • Payday loans, cheque cashing or pawnbroking; 
  • Production, distribution or sale of pornographic or sexually explicit products, or services related to the sex industry, such as nude or erotic dancing, escort services or erotic massages.

Please note: a job is in an inadmissible sector when the employer operates a business in that sector, whether or not the job contributes to it.
