    thank you for your reply miasat. i thought you also brought the attestations with you to quebec and personally submitted it oiiq. so, just your application form and other supporting documents. i'll just have prc and my school then to send the attestations as stated on oiiq's directives.

    hi howard, i hand-carried my application form and high school transcript... but of course, as directed, had prc and nursing school send my documents to oiiq.

    hi miasat! i'm currently in the philippines. i've already read and did my research concerning integration program for internationally educated professional nurses. my application packet and documents are now complete. everything is ready to be mailed back to oiiq. however, i asked my school, prc and my employer that i will be the one to send all the attestation forms in their original sealed envelopes together with my comparative form and all other supporting documents. i thought i could save money if i will send them all to oiiq in one mail.


    i understand that its on their directives that it must be sent directly by the institution/organization who are completing the forms. in your case you brought them to quebec and personally submitted the attestation forms in their orig. envelopes. but, will oiiq accept the attestation forms which are all in sealed envelopes as valid and genuine, if i mail them myself together my application for comparative and all other documents?

    you prompt reply will be greatly appreciated.
    thank you!

    hi howard, my agency also instructed me to gather all the attestations and send them as one. i believe this has been done by applicants before me and prc even asked me to claim the processed document so it means that they are not sending the document directly.

    hi miasat,

    I am from the Phil. I applied for this Quebec Nursing Program last March of this year via an agency that cost me 70T. I am now into my French class, 2nd session. I am now in the step of processing my papers in PRC, previous employment etc. I read your conversations together with other nurses, and I am glad to know that you already passed the Professional Exam, in fact I am proud of u.
    I've got lots of questions regarding this Quebec Nursing Program:
    1. How's everything going with you there in Quebec? Are you still working under the temporary working permit issued for 4 yrs?
    2. Once we're there already, are we the one who will look for a hospital where we can have the integration?
    3. What's the decision of OIIQ for you? Do u belong to the 1 month or 6 months integration?
    4. Are you paid when u have your integration in the hospital because I heard some of the hospitals will pay u 20CAD/hour?

    I am hoping to receive feedback from you or from any one. Thank You!

    hi howard, just to correct my previous post - i did handcarry all my documents to the oiiq. called them prior, and they said it was ok to mail it from the philippines, as long the envelope is sealed.
    @ewol - i posted the process i went through, including a description of the exam in one of my posts here.

    Hi miasat. Thank you for all the info. I'm also a pinay, and i just started my application. I already sent a letter to OIIQ and still waiting for the kit. I was so glad that the process you went through is the same with my agency, it only proves that my agency is real. Congratulations in passing the exam. Pls can you send me a copy of the Professional examination preparation guide so I can start reading while my application is still on process. By the way, where in the Phils. did you came from? tnx. Goodluck on your career. Hope to meet you once I'm already in Montreal. Coz right now, you're my knight in shinning armour.

    (to moderators, i hope it's ok to post this here, you may delete this if it's not in the proper thread)

    i just want to clarify something - i did not go through any agency or consultancy firm - i had a permanent resident status when i applied for assessment with oiiq. i am wondering if my posts here in allnurses (and of other posters) have led people to think that the "quebec nursing program" being marketed in the philippines is a tried and tested route to work in canada. But in my case, I did not go through this process. I am not a testimony to the legitimacy of the process being described by your immigration consultants. The "quebec nursing program" does not exist from the point of view of the canadian government. I understand it is a phrase coined for marketing purposes by an immigration consultancy office in the philippines... this sounds like the "canada live in caregiver program," so it sounds legit -
    I don't have much knowledge of immigration laws in quebec or canada, so I cannot discredit you consultant or agency or whatever they want to be called. From the information I gathered of this QNP, most of the information given to you re assessment of oiiq are accurate. You can verify all the information they give you, by calling the right people. the oiiq does have a phone number, and the canadian immigration website is a gem. But that's not my issue here.
    Again, I want to clarify and emphasize, that I was already in quebec when I applied with the oiiq. As far as I know, the last time quebec recruited nurses from the philippines was in the 70's when french wasn't a requirement. Bottomline, if you're applying for quebec, then you may be the first batch. Or ask your agent or consultant if they have ever sent anyone to quebec, ask for a name, get in touch with that person to ask how everything went...plus read up on immigration laws in quebec and the rest of canada before paying the fees.
    Quebec is a province in Canada and is thus subject to the rest of the country's immigration laws. It's not its own country. (not yet, maybe not ever).

    miasat,

    yes, i've read from your previous post that you applied for yourself and not under agency. But still, im just glad that what you went through is just the same process with mine, its just that i need assistance from an agency for proper documentation and guidance on what to do next. tnx for answering my queries. what is your status now? did you take the french exam already?
    i just have one more question, but i dont know if you have an idea about this, if you pass the board exam in quebec, is it accepted in other province in Canada? coz i'm afraid to take the french exam. tnx. God bless!

    The French exam is on the horizon of any nurse that wants to work in Quebec. If you are only using Quebec as as stepping stone to living elsewhere in Canada, do yoursel, the government of Quebec and the taxpayers a favour and apply directly to the province that you WANT to live in.
