Power of Attorney

What is a power of attorney?

The power of attorney is a contract in which you appoint someone to represent you and act on your behalf in order to carry out certain steps with the Ministère. You are therefore the mandator. The person who agrees to represent you is your mandatary.

If you choose to be represented by a mandatary for your immigration process (whether this person is paid or not), you must inform the Ministère. The powers of your mandatary extend not only to what is stipulated in the power of attorney, but also to everything that arises from it.

The Ministère has made the following power of attorney form available to you:

 

You can submit the Mandat de représentation form at any time, even after paying the applicable fees.

Warning!

  • If you are submitting an application for temporary selection for studies, you must submit the power of attorney (Mandat de représentation form) on the Arrima platform. For all other applications, except for the Programme de l’expérience québécois (PEQ – Québec experience program), the power of attorney must be mailed.
  • If you are submitting an application for permanent selection as part of the Programme de l’expérience québécois (PEQ – Québec experience program), the Arrima platform already contains instructions for mandataries. As such, the power of attorney (Mandat de représentation form) is not required. If you are submitting an application for permanent selection as part of the Regular Skilled Worker Program, you must also mail the Ministère the form Déclaration du candidat à l’immigration (in French only - dynamic PDF, 91 kB).

Moreover, note that only the following individuals are authorized to advise, assist, or represent you in your application to the Ministère:

 

The power of attorney ends if:

  • an event makes it impossible for the mandate to be executed;
  • the mandator revokes the power of attorney;
  • the mandatory renounces the power of attorney;
  • the mandatory or the mandatory dies.

 

Once the date stipulated in the power of attorney has occurred or once the mandatary and the mandator have fulfilled all of their obligations, the power of attorney is considered terminated.

It is your responsibility to inform the Ministère of any change regarding a power of attorney contained in your file. The Ministère accepts no responsibility in this respect.
