Obtaining a Certificat de sélection du Québec

Only Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) can decide whether your application for permanent residence can be processed from within Canada on humanitarian and compassionate grounds. After you receive a positive decision from IRCC, your file will be evaluated by the Government of Québec.

The examination of an application for permanent selection as a person in a special distress situation is free of charge.

If you are accepted, you will receive a Certificat de sélection du Québec (CSQ) that gives you access to certain government services. In some cases, sponsorship by an organization or close relative may be required for a CSQ to be issued.
