Quebec Business Immigration Entrepreneur Class Application Processing Times

Last updated: 2 September 2020

Quebec Entrepreneur Program application processing times are based on the latest information available from Canadian immigration authorities.

The Quebec Entrepreneur Class gives qualified business owners and managers the opportunity to obtain Canadian permanent resident status, provided that they can effectively create or acquire an agricultural, commercial or industrial business in Quebec.

The processing time for Quebec Business immigration programs, including the Quebec Entrepreneur Program only applies to the federal portion of the processing (at the visa office) once the complete application for permanent residence has been received.

The processing time for Quebec Business immigration programs is 46 months.
