January 13, 2016 – Since its launch, the Mon projet Québec online service has had a very high level of traffic from candidates wishing to submit an application for a Certificat de sélection du Québec (Québec selection certificate) under the Regular Skilled Worker Program. To date, almost 15 000 accounts have been created, demonstrating the high level of interest in immigrating to Québec.
This situation may make it difficult to access Mon projet Québec, since only a limited number of users can connect to the platform at the same time.
With the goal of giving candidates the opportunity to create their Mon projet Québec account and complete their application for a Québec selection certificate in time for the next application intake period, the Ministère is announcing that this period will be adapted in order to give candidates more time.
candidates will have until January 25, 2016, to create their account in the Mon projet Québec secure space;
after this date, it will no longer be possible to create a new account for the current application intake period;
from January 26 to February 15, 2016, candidates who have a Mon projet Québec account will be able to access it to complete the form Application for Selection Certificate online;
starting February 16, 2016, it will be possible to submit the application and pay the related fees. The application intake period will end on March 31, 2016.
During this period, the Ministère will receive a maximum of 2800 applications submitted under the Regular Skilled Worker Program. Note that applications must be submitted online, through the Mon projet Québec secure space.
Remember that applicants with a valid employment offer in hand or who are temporarily residing in Québec can submit their application at any time, except from January 25 to February 17, 2016, through Mon projet Québec.
Candidates under other immigration programs (Programme de l’expérience québécoise, businesspeople, temporary immigration and other categories) must still use the paper version of the forms available on the Ministère’s website.
