Arrival date


Due to the pandemic, you may not be allowed to travel to Canada. Please, visit our page on this subject for more details.

Given the current situation, we recommend you plan to arrive a minimum of 14 to 21 days before classes start. These days before the start of your academic semester will give you time to complete your mandatory quarantine and administrative steps required for enrolment.

If you need to find a place to live when you arrive in Québec City, we suggest you allow 3 to 5 additional days for your search.

The Bureau de la vie étudiante offers orientation activities before the semester starts, but also throughout the year to help you familiarize with Québec City.
