Permanent Residence in Quebec and Canada

Let our lawyers guide you through the permanent residence application process

In Canada, there are many steps to the permanent residence application process. It’s important to understand these steps and follow them carefully in order to minimize errors and processing delays and increase your chances of becoming a permanent resident. Although the federal government is making access to permanent residence easier and faster, the process is becoming more complex in Quebec due to new provincial government requirements and processing delays.

Our immigration lawyers and consultants can guide you through the process and give you the help you need at every step of your permanent residence application.

Applying for permanent residence

To become a permanent resident in Canada, you must apply directly through the federal government. However, some provinces require that applicants go through their own programs before applying federally.

In Quebec, immigrants who want to become permanent residents must first obtain a Quebec Selection Certificate (Certificat de sélection du Québec or CSQ) through one of two programs:

  • The Regular Skilled Worker Program (RSWP)
  • The Quebec Experience Program (Programme de l’expérience québécoise or PEQ)

Once you have obtained your certificate, you will be able to submit your application for permanent residence to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, which can be done from outside the country if needed.
