The Quebec government’s Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’Intégration has set a cap on family sponsorship applications, which is in place as of today, June 26, 2024, and will last until June 25, 2026.

The cap imposes a limit of 13,000 applications over this period:

  • 10,400 for spouses, common-law spouses, and dependent children aged 18 and up.
  • 2,600 for fathers, mothers, grandfathers, grandmothers, or other eligible relatives.

Once this cap has been reached, the Ministère will stop accepting applications.

This cap does not apply to:

  • A sponsor’s dependent minor child.
  • Minor children the sponsor wishes to adopt.
  • An orphaned minor child of the sponsor’s brother, sister, nephew, niece, grandson, or granddaughter.
  • A sponsor’s adult child who is dependent on a parent due to disability.

The individual being sponsored cannot be married or in a common-law partnership in order to be exempt from the cap.

This cap does not apply to applications to add dependents of the sponsored individual already covered by the application or to those of sponsored individuals waiting to be admitted as permanent residents following an application that has been approved.

When the cap is reached, an announcement will be made by the Ministère. Once the cap has been reached, the Ministère will return all non-exempt applications without processing them or collecting the application fee.

The surge of temporary immigrants has been blamed for the housing issue in the province by Quebec Premier François Legault in the past.
