The province of Quebec led by the Coalition Avenir Québec now has a values test for immigration applicants.
Starting January 1, 2020, Bill-9 came into effect, which involves the inclusion of questions regarding secularism, gender rights, same-sex marriage, religious symbols, and other aspects of Quebecois culture during the immigration process.
Anyone arriving through a federal jurisdiction such as refugee status or through family reunification will be exempt.
For the rest of the population, the test must be taken within a two-year period before applying for permanent immigration status.
It will include 20 multiple choice and true or false questions, with test-takers requiring a score of 75 percent to pass.
Opposition MNAs have described the bill as a potential risk towards skilled workers, while the CAQ government has argued it better aligns immigration with local needs.
