France-Québec Agreement

Since April 30, 2009, the vocational qualifications of workers in a number of construction trades in Québec and France have been recognized on both sides of the Atlantic.

This unprecedented agreement is an integral part of the France-Québec Understanding on the Mutual Recognition of professional Qualifications signed by the president of the French Republic and the premier of Québec.

A new group of construction trades in Quebec and France have been recognized since December 29, 2010. The table below lists all trades recognized in the agreement, with the criteria and requirements for obtaining the competency certificate.
