Quebec’s Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Diversité et de l’Inclusion (the Ministry of Immigration, Diversity and Inclusion, or MIDI) has announced that individuals who have submitted an online application for immigration to Canada through the Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP) may now update certain information in their application.

The MIDI clarified that applicants may:

  • update their contact information;
  • add or remove a person (spouse or dependent child) if their personal situation has changed since they submitted their last application;
  • add one or several diplomas or attestation of assessment test results of proficiency in French or English recognized by the MIDI; and/or
  • update information regarding their family members who live in Quebec.

Consequently, if an applicant has taken a new language test since the submission of their profile, he or she may update these language test results for consideration under QSWP, which operates on a points-based system. Language proficiency in French and/or English is one of the selection factors for which points may be awarded under the program.

Prior to this announcement, applicants were unable to modify or update online applications.

The MIDI also stated that is has revised the section for Linguistic proficiency following feedback from users. It is now easier to enter precise results from language tests.

Processing to begin on online applications

The MIDI announced that “we plan to start processing online applications during spring 2017,” stating that applicants will be contacted when the examination of their application has begun. These applicants will receive a personalized list of the supporting documents, which they are required to submit.

Mon Projet Québec

Since January 5, 2016, potential applicants to the QSWP are required to create a profile in the online intake management system Mon Projet Québec. These profiles may be submitted on a first-come, first-served basis during dedicated intake periods. However, individuals who are exempt from the intake limit may submit their profile at any time. Such individuals include candidates who have an employment offer validated by the MIDI, as well as individuals who are temporary residents of Quebec and eligible to submit an application for a Quebec Selection Certificate (Certificat de sélection du Québec, or CSQ). Cap-exempt persons may include eligible temporary workers, international students, and graduates.

Mon Projet Québec opened for two intake periods during the summer of 2016. During each of these intake periods, 5,000 applications for a CSQ were received for processing. It is important to note that applications received from cap-exempt individuals are in addition to this number.

Successful applicants who apply through Mon Projet Québec will receive a CSQ, with which they may then apply to the Canadian federal government for permanent resident status.

Further Activity Expected

MIDI has stated that 5,000 further applications will be received in an intake period which will take place at some point in the next twelve months, although the exact dates have not yet been announced.
