All applications from investor candidates must be sent by mail or courier, to the Direction de l'enregistrement et de l'évaluation comparative, in Montréal. Only one application can be sent at a time. Applications dropped off in person will not be accepted.

Processing times will vary according to territory, volume of applications and staff available.
