Q. I have submitted a Federal application, but I will be studying in Quebec when I expect the case to be concluded. How ill this affect my case?

Answer: As you may be aware, Quebec has its own criteria for selection of immigrants. In a case in which you are studying in Quebec at the time that you are being interviewed in relation to a Federal destination, you will most likely have to be able to demonstrate that you will be terminating your studies prior to the prospective expiration of landing documents.

If the immigration official feels that you intend to be resident in Quebec after the time of your landing, you will likely have to be assessed under Quebec’s criteria.
