Submit an official immigration application under Mon projet Québec


Be on your guard if you are asked to enter your file number on a website. In fact, the Ministère will never ask you to enter your file number on its website, except on secure platforms for an online application for a Québec Acceptance Certificate (CAQ) for studies or an online application for a Québec selection certificate (CSQ) under the Regular Skilled Worker Program (Mon projet Québec).



  1. Completing an application online in Mon projet Québec
    To apply for a Certificat de sélection du Québec (Québec selection certificate), you must create an account in the Mon projet Québec section and complete an application for a selection certificate online.
  2. Paying the required fees
    Upon receipt of the message asking you to make your payment, you will have 30 days to pay the fees related to your application, regardless of the payment method used. Payment by credit card is accepted online only. If you mail your payment, the required amount must be sent in a single mailing otherwise your payment will be returned and your application deleted.

    The processing of your application will only begin once the fees have been paid. Once the 30-day timeframe has elapsed, your application will be deleted. Therefore, any payment received by mail after this timeframe will be returned to the candidate.

  3. Submitting the application
    Before submitting your application, it is important to read the immigration rules and procedures and the information regarding the application intake periods for a Certificat de sélection du Québec.

  4. Sending the required documents
    When the Ministère is ready to process your application, a personalized list will be sent to your Mon projet Québec account. You will have a 90-day timeframe to send the documents by mail. The Ministère will start processing your application once your documents have been received.

    Make sure you respect the document requirements. Note that modifications have been made to the document requirements regarding work experience; they entered into effect on November 25, 2015.

    If it is impossible for you to submit a document in the required format, you must provide the Ministère with a written explanation.

Do you wish to use the services of a mandatary?

Applications for a Québec selection certificate submitted to the Ministère are all processed according to the same criteria. No priority or special processing is given to the file of a person who uses the services of a mandatary (lawyer, notary or recognized consultant). Consequently, it is not necessary to use the paid services of an individual to prepare your application.

However, if you decide to use the paid services of an individual, note that only the following individuals are authorized to represent you before the Ministère:


Note that call candidates are obligated to inform the Ministère if they are being represented by a paid individual. Hiding this information from the Ministère is a serious offence that could adversely affect your immigration procedure. Be vigilant when you hire someone to represent you, and respect your obligations.

If you are retaining the services of a mandatary:

You must send the originals of the following documents to the Ministère, by mail:

If applicable, you must also send a copy of the special authorization issued to your mandatary by the Barreau du Québec or the Chambre des notaires du Québec.
