The Selection for Quebec
Quebec immigration officials typically select the entrepreneurs destined to Quebec. As such, the entrepreneurs would need to obtain a Quebec certificate of selection (CSQ) before any federal officers will consider their applications.
In many cases, the officers will find that the applications present no indications of inadmissibility or concerns pertaining to the supporting documentation provided. In this scenario, the officers have the authority to waive the requirement for the interview.
The province of Quebec has the right to impose conditions on entrepreneurs. This is in accordance with the provisions specified in A9 (1) (d). In addition, the provisions specified in R98 (2) require the entrepreneur to sign the written statement that refers to those conditions.
It is worth mentioning that the province of Quebec implemented a separate set of conditions for Quebec-selected entrepreneurs. These conditions came into effect on October 16, 2006. Any entrepreneur issued a Quebec certificate of selection (CSQ) on or after this date would need to respect the conditions prescribed by the province of Quebec. Similarly, Quebec-selected entrepreneurs issued Quebec certificates of selection (CSQs) prior to October 16, 2006 would need to respect the conditions specified in R98 (1) to R98 (5).
The Monitoring Process in Quebec
The entrepreneurs will typically arrive in Quebec. Thereafter the federal officials of Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) would need to manage the requirement of reporting and providing evidence of the entrepreneur’s efforts to comply. This is in accordance with the provisions specified in R98.
