Processing the application

Processing time

All complete applications received under the Programme de l’expérience québécoise (PEQ – Québec Experience Program) will be processed on a priority basis, within 20 working days, excluding postal delays, if they do not require an audit interview.

Incomplete file

To accelerate processing of applications submitted under the PEQ, it is important to submit a complete file. Incomplete files will be returned to the sender.

To be admissible, your file must include parts 1 and 2 of the Demande de sélection – Programme de l’expérience québécoise (PEQ) form (A-0520-GF or A-0520-IF) duly completed and signed, any other required forms duly completed and signed, all the documents requested in the required format as well as full and exact payment of the fees required (in Canadian currency only) to process your application.

When your application is processed, if any information, signature or supporting documents are missing, or if the documents provided are not in the required format, you will receive a letter from Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Diversité et de l’Inclusion indicating which documents are missing or incomplete and in what format they must be provided. You will have a maximum of 60 working days to send us these supporting documents. If you do not meet this deadline, your application will be rejected.

If you are a Québec graduate, you must meet all the program requirements at the time of your application.

Selection process

Unlike the regular selection program for skilled workers, the Programme de l’expérience québécoise does not use a system that attributes points based on different assessment factors. Your file must be complete in order for your application to be processed.

You must meet all the conditions of the Programme de l’expérience québécoise to obtain a Certificat de sélection du Québec. If one or more requirements are not met, the certificate cannot be issued.

Furthermore, if you included your spouse or de facto spouse in your application, he or she has no selection requirements to meet.

Conditions not met

If you fail to submit parts 1 and 2 of the duly completed and signed application as well as all the necessary forms and supporting documents in the required format and within the time allotted, your application will be rejected.

Addition of a family member

To add a spouse or de facto spouse, you must again complete a Demande de sélection permanente – Programme de l’expérience québécoise (PEQ) form (A-0520-GF or A-0520-IF). You and your spouse or de facto spouse must duly complete the form, sign it in all the spaces provided and include all necessary documents for your spouse or de facto spouse in the required format. You must also include full and exact payment of the fees required for the addition of a spouse or de facto spouse.

If Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Diversité et de l’Inclusion has already issued you a Certificat de sélection du Québec for yourself and, if applicable, for your dependent children included in your application, you must return them before you can obtain new CSQs for you, your spouse or de facto spouse and each of the children accompanying you.

If you add a dependent child, you must provide all the documents requested for a dependent child in the required format under Part 2 of the Demande de sélection permanente  – Programme de l’expérience québécoise (PEQ) form (A-0520-GF or A-0520-IF) as well as full and exact payment of the fees required for the addition of a dependent child.

 

IMPORTANT:In accordance with the legislation in force, all individuals must, if required and under penalty of rejection of their application, answer questions from an immigration officer, including during an interview, and submit all documents required by Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Diversité et de l’Inclusion to verify the accuracy of the information provided in their application.
