did you know that the city of Quebec will pay immigrants an allowance to take French classes.
The participation allowance is available to all persons taking full-time courses.
However, immigrants are not eligible for this allowance if they:
- are receiving employment assistance benefits under the Act respecting income security or employment insurance benefits
- are referred by the Ministère de l’Emploi et de la Solidarité sociale.
This allowance is independent of your family situation and income. Your allowance could be $115 or $30 a week, depending on your immigration class.
A number of conditions apply.
