Conditions and procedure

When to submit an application

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.

As a temporary foreign worker staying in Québec, you must wait until you have completed at least twelve months of full-time work before applying for permanent selection under the Programme de l’expérience  québécoise (PEQ – Québec Experience Program).

These 12 months of work must have been completed within the 24 months preceding your application. They may have been completed with one or more employers, on a continuous or discontinuous basis. However, a job held as a self-employed worker or for a company that you own, in whole or in part, is not considered under the Programme de l’expérience québécoise.

In addition, you must also hold a paid full-time job in Québec at the time of application.
