The fees required must be paid in full, in Canadian currency only, by you or by a third party. These fees are non-refundable, even if your application is refused or rejected.

1 The increase affects the fees payable under An Act Respecting Immigration to Québec and the Regulation respecting the selection of foreign nationals as well as the fees for an Évaluation comparative des études effectuées hors du Québec (comparative evaluation for studies done outside Québec). The 1.09% adjustment corresponds to the increase in Québec’s consumer price index for the period ending on September 30, 2015. It respects the requirements of Section 83.3 of the Québec government’s Financial Administration Act.
