Procedure for the sponsored person

As a sponsor, you are responsible for completing most of the documents concerning the arrival of the sponsored person in Québec. However, certain steps are the sole responsibility of the person you are sponsoring.

Application for the Certificat de sélection du Québec

Before submitting your undertaking application to the Government of Québec, the person you are sponsoring must complete and sign the Demande de sélection permanente – Catégorie du regroupement familial (Application for permanent selection – Family reunification class) form and return it to you promptly. You must enclose this form with your undertaking application

If your undertaking application is accepted, a Certificat de sélection du Québec (CSQ – Québec Selection Certificate) will be issued to the person you are sponsoring. The decision of Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’Intégration will be forwarded directly to the Canadian visa office covering the sponsored person’s country. The person you are sponsoring can then apply for permanent residence.

Application for permanent residence

Final admission of applicants to Canada falls under the jurisdiction of the Government of Canada.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada processes your sponsored person’s application for permanent residence. Your sponsored person and his or her family members (whether they are accompanying him or her or not) must meet the health and safety requirements of the Government of Canada in order to be granted permanent residence.

Permanent residence application fees

Fees are charged by the Government of Canada to process an application for permanent residence (visa).

A fee is also charged for medical examinations.


IMPORTANT: If your sponsored person’s family situation changes (birth, death, separation, etc.), you must immediately inform Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’Intégration and Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada.
