- A copy of the letter of invitation from Université Laval
- An up-to-date résumé
- An official document indicating the date your PhD was awarded*
- An official birth certificate or a legible copy
If you are not a citizen or permanent resident of Canada you must also submit the following documents:
- A copy of the work permit issued by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada
- Proof of health and hospital insurance coverage that is valid in Canada

If all the paperwork has been submitted, the Registrar’s Office will officially complete your admission and registration and send you a confirmation email.
