CAQ Application Guide

 2. Certificate of Acceptance of Quebec (CAQ)


Renew your CAQ 3 - 4 months before expiry.  

  • The application is completed online and the processing fee ($108 CAD) can be paid by credit card.
  • Post-application, you will receive a checklist of the supporting documents to mail to Immigration Quebec’s office (address provided on the checklist).
  • For the start and end date of your program, indicate approximate dates for the duration of your entire degree (example: 3 years, 4 years, etc).
  • If your checklist includes a request for proof of financial capacity, your parents (or financial guardians) should provide a confirmation of their annual salary and/or investments/savings indicating that they can cover tuition and fees plus one year of living expenses.  For living expenses, Immigration Quebec requires a minimum of $1,000 per month.
  • If you are applying for U.S. government aid, please note that a copy of your application for aid will not be sufficient: the approval of aid awarded will be required.
