Programme de l’expérience québécoise (PEQ – Québec experience program)

As of January 26, 2021, candidates for the Programme de l’expérience québécoise (PEQ – Québec experience program) must submit an application for permanent selection, transmit the supporting documents for their application and make the payment of the required fees in Arrima. Paper applications are accepted by the Ministère until January 25, 2021.

As of July 22, 2020, new selection conditions apply to foreign nationals who submit an application under the PEQ. One of the new selection conditions pertains to the spouse or de facto spouse included in the principal applicant’s application. Transitional measures are also planned.

The Programme de l’expérience québécoise (PEQ – Québec experience program) enables the selection of skilled workers who wish to settle in Québec permanently. This program is intended for Québec graduates and temporary foreign workers who are employed and who meet certain conditions, including demonstrating knowledge of spoken French (oral comprehension and oral production) at a skill level equal to or higher than level 7 on the Échelle québécoise des niveaux de compétence en français des personnes immigrates adultes (in French only - PDF, 1923 kB) or its equivalent.
