MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS

The following requirements must be met if you are applying for a work permit under the IMP+ program:

1- Place of Residence

Reside outside Canada or any province or territory other than Quebec at the time of submission.

Applicants who are in Canada in a province or territory other than Quebec at the time of submission must:

  • have a valid temporary resident status
  • be eligible for restoration of status as a temporary resident, or
  • be eligible to apply for a work permit from within Canada

2- Quebec Selection Certificate (CSQ)

You must hold a valid Quebec Selection Certificate (CSQ) that was issued through the Quebec Skilled Worker Program (➨Page) or the Quebec permanent immigration pilot program for workers in the artificial intelligence, information technologies and visual effects sectors (➨Page)

You are not eligible under this category if you received a refusal on your permanent residence applications in one of the Quebec classes and still have a valid CSQ or you have an open work permit as a refugee claimant or under an enforceable removal order.

You are not eligible if you have already received a positive decision on your application for permanent residence.

3- Letter of Invitation from Quebec

You  must have received an IMP+ letter of invitation from Quebec’s Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’Intégration (MIFI).

If you hold a CSQ obtained under the Regular Skilled Worker Program or the Artificial Intelligence, Information Technologies and Visual Effects Permanent Immigration Pilot Program, you can receive a communication from MIFI. It will enable you to apply for an open work permit from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), if you meet the related conditions.

WHAT STEPS SHOULD YOU TAKE?

Step 1: Apply for Work Permit

If you have all the above requirements, you will have 90 days effective from the mailing date of the Invitation Letter from MIFI to apply for work permit. You can apply for this work permit before or after submitting an application for permanent residence to IRCC.

Submission of applications for Work Permit must be done online (with a very few exceptions).

If you are from a country that requires a visa to enter Canada and if you are applying from outside Canada, a Visitor Visa (TRV) is issued upon approval. Applicant applying from inside Canada will have to apply for a TRV separately after their work permit is approved, if they would like to travel outside Canada and return.

Step 2: Get your fingerprint and photo taken (Biometrics)

You and any members of your family between 14 and 79 years old need to give your fingerprints and photo (biometrics). You only need to give your biometrics once every 10 years. If you gave biometrics in the past as part of an application for a visitor visa, work or study permit and they’re still valid, you don’t need to give them again.

You will be contacted to give your biometrics and you will have 30 days from the date on the letter to do it.

In order to give biometrics you need to go to an official biometrics collection service point. You must give your biometrics in person.

Before you go, check the location’s website for its services and fees at (➨ immilib.com/Biometrics).

Step 3: Work Permit Issuance

If your application is approved, you’ll get a letter that says you’re allowed to work in Canada. The work permit will be mailed to your Canadian address.
