A worker with a valid competency certificate or exemption from holding a competency certificate who wishes to change their home address must submit two supporting documents with their request if they move from one placement region to another. If their placement region changes, the worker will receive a duplicate copy of their competency certificate; otherwise, a change of home address confirmation notice will be sent to them (this notice must be kept with the competency certificate).
However, if the worker’s competency certificate or exemption has expired, if they do not move from one placement region to another, or if they want to change only their mailing address (the address where their mail is sent), they do not have to provide supporting documents.
Following your request, the CCQ reserves the right to carry out additional checks.
A change of address may be made in four ways.
- By using the online services:
The worker accesses “Mon dossier” in the onlines services to change their home and/or mailing address. If required, they must send in two supporting documents via the contact form in the “Pour nous joindre” section (choose “Autres sujets”), by mail, fax or in person.
- By mail or fax:
The worker prints out, completes and signs the change of address form and sends it to customer services at the regional office of their new region. If required, the worker attaches the two supporting documents to the form.
- In person at a regional office:
The worker goes in person to the customer services department at the regional office of their new region with their two supporting documents, if required.
- By phone:
The worker calls customer services and asks to have their mailing and/or home address updated. If required, they then send in two supporting documents via the online services “Pour nous joindre” form (choose “Autres sujets”) by mail, fax or in person.
The head office, mailing or accounting address of the corporation, company or sole proprietorship may be changed in two ways.
