Language requirements for New proposed changes on PEQ

Foreign students graduated in Quebec:
• International students who have obtained an eligible qualification for the PEQ, or who obtain it by December 31, 2020, may apply under the conditions that applied before the coming into force of the regulatory changes.

• The Department will continue to accept, after the effective date of the regulation, the certificate of success of the advanced intermediate level French course offered by a Quebec institution for those who have already passed it, for those who followed it or for those who were already registered before the entry into force of the new regulation.
• The requirement of oral knowledge of French at level 4 for the spouse, the spouse included in the request will come into force one year after the coming into force of the regulation, that is, on July 22 2021. This requirement will therefore not apply to applicants whose applications are submitted before that date.
