Application management methods effective April 1, 2014

On April 1, 2014, new rules governing the maximum number of applications that will be received by the Ministère will enter into effect and will be applicable until March 31, 2015.

The rules pertaining to the maximum number of applications that will be received do not in any way reflect a change in Québec’s immigration objectives (in French - PDF, 219 Kb). By limiting the number of applications received, the Ministère will be able to process a greater number of pending applications thereby reducing processing times.

These new rules apply to the following economic immigration programs:

Permanent workers

The Ministère will receive a maximum of 6500 applications for a selection certificate under the Regular Skilled Worker Program. Applications received beyond this maximum limit will be returned.

It is important to note that the rules pertaining to applications excluded from this maximum number, processing priority and the selection grid will be renewed.

Investors

From September 8 to 19, 2014, the Ministère will receive a maximum of 1750 applications for a selection certificate under the Investor Program, with a maximum of 1200 applications per country. If, after this period, the maximum of 1750 applications has not been attained, candidates will also be able to submit their applications between December 1 and 12, 2014.

It is important to note that the rules pertaining to applications excluded from this maximum number, processing priority and the selection grid will be renewed.

Entrepreneurs and self-employed workers

The Ministère will receive a maximum of 500 applications for a selection certificate under the Self-Employed Worker and Entrepreneur programs. Applications received beyond this maximum limit will be returned.

It is important to note that the rules pertaining to applications excluded from this maximum number, processing priority and the selection grid will be renewed.
