QUEBEC — The Quebec government is moving ahead with its controversial values test on newcomers wishing to settle in the province.
For those would-be immigrants, securing a Quebec selection certificate will be conditional upon successful completion of the test.
The details of the test rules were published today in the province’s Official Gazette, but the wording of the questions was not.
A passing grade for the test will be 75 per cent and in case of failure, it will only be possible to retake the test once; after failing twice, the only option remaining will be to take a course on Quebec values.
Premier Francois Legault told reporters today it was important that those wishing to live in Quebec understand the province’s values, namely gender equality and secularism of the state.
