Lawyers providing immigration assistance

In terms of language

It is recommended that you learn French before you come to Québec. If you have received your Certificat de sélection du Québec (CSQ) and your knowledge of French is at the intermediate level, you may register for free courses online.

More information may be found on the website of Francisation en ligne (FEL) of the Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Diversité et de l'Inclusion (MIDI). The MIDI has also entered into francization partnerships in a number of countries, including the Réseau des Alliances françaises. The fees for French courses taken with one of the MIDI's partners might be refunded to you when you arrive in Québec if you are over 16 years of age and have a CSQ.

However, if you were unable to take French courses before you came to Québec, you may register for courses once you get here. Educational institutions or MIDI-designated organizations offer full-time and part-time courses. Financial assistance might then be offered to you by the Ministère, under certain conditions.

You may also register for French courses—to learn the language or perfect your skills—at universities, colleges (CÉGEPs) and other training centres.
