Quebec “values test” kicks off

Starting January 1, newcomers immigrating to Quebec are required to pass the province’s “values test.”

The test includes 20 multiple choice and true or false questions. Test takers are given 90 minutes to complete the test and must score at least 75 per cent to pass.
