Making a sustainable mark on the world


International Students



Welcome to Université Laval! You'll find everything you need to know about staying and working legally in Canada on this website.

This information is intended for international students who have received an acceptance letter (by email only) or who are already studying or doing an internship in Canada and would like to extend their stay at Université Laval.

What you should do next depends on your situation:

Newly admitted students*

Students already in Canada*

Other categories*


*Important: on November 14, 2019, the Québec government issued a decree formalizing the announcement made on November 8 to suspend the changes to the Québec Experience Program (PEQ) that had been in effect since November 1. With this, the Québec Experience Program has become active once again with the rules that were in effect before November 1, 2019. 

To make it easier for you to access useful information, we have compiled the main answers to the most frequently asked questions in an online, ever-evolving Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page.       


Important note: This website is intended to provide general information on current procedures, which may change at any time without notice. Quebec and Canadian laws and regulations in effect as well as the websites of Ministère de l'Immigration, de la Francisation et de l'Intégration (MIFI), and Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) take precedence over this website.
