Quebec increased fees for Ministry services

Updated: Jan 13

On December 16, 2021, the government of Quebec announced an increase in application fees for services provided by the Ministry.

Starting from January 1, 2021, the Ministry’s fees will be indexed by 2.64%, which are adjusted every year in accordance with section 83.3 of the Financial Administration Act, and the adjustment rate issued by the Ministere des Finances du Quebec.

This adjustment depends on the annual change in the average all-items Consumer Price Index in the province. The province also introduced a new table indicating the new required fees in 2022. The table below shows application fees for the permanent immigration.
