The invited candidates must apply for the permanent selection within six months from the date of submitting all documents and forms for processing the application.

If they are successful, they will get the Certificat de sélection du Québec (CSQ or Quebec Selection Certificate). They can then use the certificate to apply for permanent residence with the federal government.
