Note for organizations established and operating in Quebec

The National Assembly of Quebec has adopted the Act respecting the Ministère du Conseil exécutif    (CQLR, Chapter M‑30). The Act states that public organizations in Quebec must obtain authorization from the Government of Quebec before signing any agreement with the Government of Canada, any of its departments or government agencies, or a federal public agency. Any entity subject to the Act must obtain the necessary authorization before signing any such agreement. If your project is selected, Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) will give you a reasonable amount of time to obtain the authorization of the Government of Quebec. If you are unable to obtain the required authorization within a reasonable timeframe, your application could be withdrawn.
