The Government of Quebec stopped the application intake through the province’s Refugee Collective Sponsorship Program. Last year, Quebec’s Ministry of Immigration, Francisation and Integration (MIFI) announced the application intake for the program. From January 18, 2022, to February 16, 2022, the province accepted sponsorship applications for refugees. Quebec aims to accept 825 applications for the sponsorship of refugees in 2022. The province will accept half of these applications from organizations and the other half from groups of two to five people. Last year, Quebec welcomed 1,610 refugees.
