TCF for Quebec:

  • Since 16 October 2006, the Quebec Ministry of Immigration (MICC) has required people submitting applications to immigrate to Quebec to provide proof of their level of competency in French by taking the "TCF pour le Québec", or TCF test for Québec.
  • This test can only be taken by people who submit an immigration application at a Quebec immigration office or at Délégations Générales du Québec, Quebec government offices abroad.

The TCF is compulsory for future students as part of the DAP (Demande d'Admission Préalable, or preliminary admission application) for admission on first and second year university degree courses and for architecture students.
