Temporary worker exempt from the Certificat d'acceptation du Québec (CAQ)

Some foreign nationals who wish to work temporarily in Québec are not required to obtain a Certification d'acceptation du Québec (CAQ - Québec Acceptance Certificate) for temporary work:

 

The fact that the foreign worker has not obtained a CAQ does not exempt the employer from applying for a Labour Market Impact Assessment from the Government of Canada.

 

IMPORTANT
People in the skilled worker class who hold a Certificat de sélection du Québec (CSQ), who live in Québec, who have a job offer from an employer and who have a valid work permit at the time of their application do not have to obtain a Certificat d’acceptation du Québec (CAQ) before applying for a temporary work permit. The employer is therefore exempt from the obligation to apply for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) from Service Canada and the Ministère de l'Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’Intégration. For more information on this, consult the section After Obtaining the CSQ.
