Invitations

The Ministère will carry out invitation exercises on a regular basis, according to labour market needs and the integration potential of immigrants.

To do so, the Ministère may, in particular, rank individuals who have submitted an expression of interest to the minister based on weighted criteria and according to a scoring system determined by ministerial order published in the Gazette officielle du Québec (in French only).

These invitations allow persons invited to submit an application for permanent selection in order to obtain a Certificat de sélection du Québec (CSQ - Québec Selection Certificate) within a period of 6 months. The 6-month period begins on the date when all the information required to process your application (forms and documents) has been received and added to your file. These persons can then submit an application for permanent residence to the Government of Canada.

Frequency of invitations

The Ministère frequently carries out invitation exercises. You may be invited to submit an application for permanent selection at any time; that is why it is important to regularly update your expression of interest.

Results of invitation exercises

Under section 45 of the Québec Immigration Act (CQLR, chapter I-0.2.1), the Minister must make public his or her decision, made on the basis of invitation criteria, to invite persons to submit an application for selection.
