New fees for processing immigration applications to Quebec for permanent and temporary stays are in effect as of January 1, 2022.
Quebec's Ministry of Immigration, Francisation and Integration, or MIFI, updates the fees for its entire immigration program each year. In a December 16 press release, the ministry said the adjusted fees are based on a 2.64 per cent increase in the Quebec consumer price index.
Individuals interested in moving to Quebec permanently through an economic program are required to submit an application for a Quebec Selection Certificate (CSQ) under the Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP), Quebec Experience Program (PEQ) or Quebec Business Immigration programs before applying to the federal government for permanent residence.
To work or study in Quebec, foreign nationals must first apply to the Government of Quebec for a Quebec Acceptance Certificate (CAQ) before submitting a temporary work or study permit application to the Government of Canada.
