Conditions and procedure

When to submit an application

As a future Québec graduate, you can submit your application for a Certificat de sélection du Québec (CSQ – Québec selection certificate) no earlier than six months before the date on which you expect to receive your attestation of successful completion or diploma eligible under the Programme de l’expérience québécoise and no later than 36 months following receipt of your diploma. However, the Certificat de sélection du Québec will be issued to you only upon presentation of your complete and final transcripts accompanied by an attestation of successful completion or your diploma.

You can submit your application for the Programme de l'expérience québécoise from Québec or from abroad.

If your application is refused, you will be asked to submit an application under the Regular Skilled Worker Program, free of charge and according to the rules in effect for the intake and processing of applications.

If you have started a new study program, you cannot submit an application for a Certificat de sélection du Québec as a skilled worker.

If you are a Québec graduate and have held a skilled job for at least 12 months, for example, through a post-diploma work permit, you can submit your application under the PEQ as either a Québec graduate or a skilled temporary foreign worker, depending on the selection conditions that are the most advantageous for you. However, make sure to use the appropriate form.
