Transitional measures for the Programme de l’expérience québécoise (PEQ – Québec experience program)

With the introduction of new conditions for the Programme de l’expérience québécoise (PEQ – Québec experience program), the following transitional measures will apply:

  • All foreign students who obtained a diploma eligible under the PEQ or will obtain one by December 31, 2020, can submit an application for permanent selection based on the selection conditions in place before July 22, 2020.
  • Temporary foreign workers who hold a valid work permit or another authorization to work under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (SOR/2002/227) and who were living in Québec on July 21, 2020 will be able to submit an application for permanent selection based on the conditions in effect before July 22, 2020.
  • The Ministère will continue to accept the attestation of successful completion of an advanced intermediate French course as a document that can be submitted regarding knowledge of French if the applicant has already passed this course, was attending the course or had already registered for it on July 21, 2020.
  • The requirement of level-4 spoken French for the spouse or de facto spouse will come into effect after the implementation of this regulation, i.e. on July 22, 2021. A spouse or de facto spouse who is included in the application for permanent selection of a temporary foreign worker who held a valid work permit on July 21, 2020, does not have to demonstrate knowledge of spoken French, regardless of the date of submission of the application.
  • All applications submitted before the date on which the new regulation comes into effect will be processed according to the conditions in effect before July 22, 2020.
