Public: anyone, regardless of their nationality and native language, who wishes to begin permanent immigration procedures with the Quebec Ministry of Immigration, Diversity and Inclusion.
The TCF for Quebec has been designed to meet the demands of Quebecoise authorities, which make taking the tests and standardised French examinations obligatory and systematic within the context of procedures for obtaining the Certificat de Sélection du Québec (CSQ) (Quebec Selection Certificate) leading to the issuance of a permanent visa. French and francophone people are also affected by this.
The Quebecoise authorities also recognize, as an exemption, the complete TCF tout public with the speaking expression as well as DELF and DALF diplomas (subject to obtaining a minimum score in the oral comprehension and oral expression examinations and a validity of less than 2 years).
From 1 August 2013, the Quebecoise authorities require a minimum B2 level to issue a maximum of 16 points for this linguistic evaluation.
