Special Teaching Qualification Program

The Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’Intégration (MIFI – Québec’s ministry of immigration, francisation, and integration) has set up the Programme d’aide financière pour la formation d’appoint en reconnaissance des compétences (PAFFARC – Financial assistance program for skills recognition). The PAFFARC is specifically for people who were educated outside Canada. It gives you access to financial assistance to take occupational upgrading so you can get your skills recognized by a regulatory body.

The occupational upgrading has to enable you to work in Québec practising a profession or trade that the program covers. The PAFFARC is designed to help you settle into life in Québec and become part of Québec’s workforce.

To learn more about the program’s admission requirements and how to receive financial assistance, visit the PAFFARC’s webpage.
