PEQ immigration program

In Quebec, there is a fast-track immigration program called Programme de l’Experience Quebecoise (PEQ) which offers international students the opportunity to apply for a Post Graduate Work Permit (PGWP) of up to 3 years upon successfully completing a vocational training program. Programs of 900 hours or more could lead to a PGWP of 1-3 years. Consequently, students are also eligible to apply for Permanent Residency upon completion of their studies and after meeting several other eligibility criterion. For more information on this immigration program, click here: https://www.immigration-quebec.gouv.qc.ca/en/immigrate-settle/students/stay-quebec/application-csq/students-peq/index.html.


For students registering in vocational training, we have a list of accommodation options that students can use as a reference. You will find it on the left side of our website. Click on “Documents and Brochures” and then click on “Accommodation Options”.


Given the current labor shortage, some international students studying in vocational training programs are temporarily allowed to work without a limit of hours per week during the course of their studies. Please refer to Immigration Canada’s website for more details about this temporary adjustment to the work and study rights. Despite the temporary adjustment, studying should still remain students’ priority.
