Quebec Self-Employed immigration application processing times are based on the latest information available from Canadian immigration authorities.
The Quebec Self-Employed Worker Program allows eligible self-employed applicants the opportunity to obtain Canadian permanent residence provided that they can effectively establish themselves in Quebec by practicing a trade or profession on a self-employed basis.
The processing time for Quebec Business immigration programs, including the Quebec Self-Employed Worker Program only applies to the federal part of the processing (at the visa office) once the complete application for permanent residence has been received.
The processing time estimation does not include the time it takes for the province of Quebec to process the Quebec Selection Certificate, or Certificat de sélection du Québec (CSQ).
