Situation 1. You were born in Quebec
Premise: You were born in Quebec
One of the following documents is required:
- Quebec birth certificate: Your Quebec birth certificate must have been issued by the Directeur de l'etat civil, and must feature the notation Certifié conforme or Certified. The certificate must have been issued after January 1994. Certificates marked Certifié conforme a l'article 137 are only acceptable to prove Canadian status, and not Quebec residency.
- Marriage Certificate: Issued by the Directeur de L'État Civil and your place of birth is a clearly identifiable location in Quebec, e.g., Montreal.
- Statement of live birth or birth registration certificate: Issued by the Quebec government before January 1994 and the place of birth on the document is a clearly identifiable location in Quebec, e.g., Montreal. Statements of live birth that have been noted with the following are not acceptable: "This document is not a birth certificate" or "this document is not an act of birth".
- Canadian passport: A valid or expired Canadian passport is acceptable where the place of birth indicated is a clearly identifiable location in Quebec AND you already have a Quebec permanent code which has been validated to us by the Ministry of Education (i.e. the perm code is visible in your Minerva account at Student>Student Accounts>View Tuition & Legal Status).
N.B. Baptismal certificates are no longer accepted by the Ministry as proof of Quebec residency.
