Self-employed workers in Quebec

  • A. Signature of the agreement. Our legal team will look into your case to present it according to the highest standards of government authorities.
  • B. Preparation of your application file and submission to the Quebec immigration authorities (MIFI).
  • C. Issuance of the file number. Immigration authorities will review your case and assign a case number.
  • D. Selection interview and/or eventual trip to Quebec. It is possible that the MIFI will call you for a face-to-face or online selection interview. If this is the case, your lawyer will accompany you in the preparation and during this interview with an immigration officer. You will discuss this possibility with your immigration lawyer.
  • E. Decision. After examination, the immigration officer will make his decision to accept or refuse the file. He can also opt to request additional documents to clarify certain elements. Your immigration lawyer will accompany you and ensure that the requested documents are provided within the prescribed time. In the event of a refusal, your lawyer will analyze the reasons that led to this decision as well as the possibilities of filing an application for administrative review at no additional cost.
  • F. Issuance of the C.S.Q. After acceptance, the government du Québec, will issue a CSQ (Québec Selection Certificate), which means that it accepts your application for permanent selection.
  • G.Submitting the application for Canadian permanent residence to IRCC. Your lawyer will then use this CSQ to prepare and submit your application for Canadian permanent residence and your work permit if you wish to settle in Quebec while it is being processed. Your lawyer will continue to be your legal representative during this last step with the federal immigration authorities (IRCC).
  • H. Issuance of permanent residence: You and your family members are now Canadian permanent residents. This status is renewable every five (5) years if you remain in Canada for at least 730 days during those five (5) years. You can also apply for citizenship if you stay at least three (3) years out of these five (5) years and thus obtain a Canadian passport.
