Types of jobs eligible under the Programme de l’expérience québécoise (PEQ)

Only paid full-time skilled jobs practiced legally are eligible under the PEQ.

A skilled job is a job at the managerial, professional or technical level (levels 0, A or B, under the National Occupational Classification).

For more information on the National Occupational Classification, visit the web site of Employment and Social Development Canada.

A full-time job implies a minimum of 30 hours of paid work per week.

Full-time work experience gained in the framework of the post-graduation work permit program, a youth exchange program (e.g., Working Holiday, Young Professionals, International Co-op) or an employment internship that is not connected to a study program in Québec may be taken into account if they meet all the requirements of the PEQ.

No part-time work period can be taken into account for eligibility under the PEQ.

A job occupied by a candidate as a self-employed worker or for a business that he or she owns, in whole or in part, is not considered under this program.
