Conditions and procedure

Important :
Since November 1, 2019, Québec graduates can submit an application for permanent selection under the Programme de l’expérience québécoise (PEQ – Québec experience program). Temporary foreign workers can continue submitting an application.

Effective November 14, 2019, the selection conditions of the PEQ which had prevailed before November 1, 2019 are re-established. Consult the news.

Effective January 1, 2020, a new selection condition regarding the learning of democratic values and the Québec values expressed by the Charter of human rights and freedoms applies to all economic immigration programs. For more details, see the page about the attestation of learning about democratic values and the Québec values.

When to apply

As a Québec graduate, you can apply to the PEQ from Québec or abroad not later than 36 months after receiving your diploma.

If you are a Québec graduate and have held a job, e.g., under a post-graduation work permit, you can apply to the PEQ as a temporary foreign worker, as long as you meet the other conditions. However, be sure to use the appropriate form.
