Beginning on January 1, 2020, potential immigrants to Québec will have to undergo a “values test” that addresses five categories, drawn from the Québec Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms.
The test will consist of 20 multiple choice questions drawn from a pool of hundreds, and the passing score is 15/20 (75%). Those who fail the test are invited to re-take it two weeks later, and a second failure will oblige applicants to take a daylong course in integration. The test is taken online and includes informational videos that outline the materials on the test.
The Government of Québec has released sample questions for the values test, which include:
- True or false: In Québec, women and men have the same rights and this is inscribed in the law.
- What is the official language of Québec?
- English and French
The values test is not mandatory for all applicants, but this depends on what category they use to apply for immigration to Québec.
