Tax Exemption for Postdoctoral Fellows from Foreign Countries
Foreigners who are hired by a university as postdoctoral researchers can receive the Government of Quebec tax exemption if they meet the eligibility criteria established by the Government of Quebec. This exemption is renewable annually.
To benefit from the tax exemption measure, non-resident postdoctoral candidates must, among other things, obtain an eligibility certificate from the Ministère de l’Éducation et Enseignement supérieur (Ministry of Education).
