Can anyone decode the below CSQ (Certificat de selection du Quebec, or Quebec selection certificate) category types? I guess F1 is family class, sponsored by spouse?

C0, C1, C2, C3, C4, C5, C6, C7, C8, F1, F8, H1, H2, H3, H4, H5, H6, HA, HB, HC, HD, HE, HF, HG, HH, HI, HJ, HK, HL, HM, HN, HO, ID, I4, I5, I6, IJ, IK, IL, IP, IT or RA

Update: I've since found out the definitions:

F1 or F8 = family reunification. Spouse selected in the category of family reunification and indicating a commitment of sponsorship.
I5 or ID = live-in caregiver.
RA = members of the family of a refugee. Members of a family in Québec who are not themselves recognized as refugees but who are included in a request for permanent residency status of their relative who is a recognized refugee.
H* (H followed by a number from 1 – 6 or a letter from A – O) = humanitarian reasons

I figured it out after a long time of searching. You can find what each of those mean in:

GUIDE DES PROCÉDURES D’IMMIGRATION
COMPOSANTE 5
MANUEL DE RÉFÉRENCE
CHAPITRE 7
LE CERTIFICAT DE SÉLECTION DU QUÉBEC

See appendix 3.

I would post a link here but it won't let me. The ww2.publications link is from 2011 so should be still valid.

Good luck!
