Quebec Immigration rules and procedures
The rules governing the intake and processing of applications for a certificat de sélection du Québec pertain to applications submitted by economic immigration candidates.
The rules regarding the maximum number of applications that are received by the Ministère do not in any way reflect a change in Québec’s immigration objectives. By limiting the number of applications received, the Ministère is able to process a greater number of pending applications and reduce processing times.
* If you have advanced intermediate knowledge of French demonstrated by a standardized test recognized by the Ministère, your application is not subject to these rules and you can submit your application at any time until March 31, 2017.
** A maximum of 1330 applications from foreign nationals from the People’s Republic of China, including the administrative regions of Hong Kong and Macao, will be accepted.
*** You can submit your application at any time if you are in one or the other of the situations specified in the Permanent workers section.
The maximum number of applications for a certificat de sélection du Québec that can be received under the Entrepreneur Program is 50. Applications that exceed this limit will be returned.
Entrepreneur applicants who demonstrate, by means of a test recognized by the Ministère, that they have an advanced intermediate knowledge of French, are not subject to this maximum number of applications and can submit their application at any time. These applications will receive priority processing.
The maximum number of applications for a certificat de sélection du Québec that can be received under the Self-employed workers Program is 50. Applications that exceed this limit will be returned.
