What is permanent selection in Quebec?

The permission for a Canada immigration candidate to settle in Quebec permanently is granted if their application is approved. After approval, a CSQ is awarded to them. The CSQ (Certificat de Sélection du Québec) or Quebec Selection Certificate is a document issued by MIFI to declare that a particular immigration applicant has been selected to settle in Quebec.

Quebec keen on inviting more immigrants with French language skills

Holding a CSQ, you can apply for Canada PR visa to the federal immigration authorities (IRCC). Quebec can choose immigrants as per its own criteria. However, it can't grant applicants a Canada PR visa. So, you mustn’t take CSQ as a permanent residence visa. CSQ also can’t be used to enter Canada.

The validity of CSQ is either 24 months or the time taken by IRCC to make a decision on an application for Canada PR. Every CSQ issued before August 2, 2018, will have the older duration of validity which is 36 months.
