To better welcome the public and reduce waiting times, the French Embassy in Canada will outsource the collection of visa applications to VFS Global.

This new process will gradually be put in place between April and July 2018, with the opening of four visa application centers in:

  • Montréal on April 18th
  • Toronto on May 31st
  • Vancouver on June 28th
  • Ottawa on July 12th

Filing procedures remain unchanged until each location opens. Once these centers are open, applicants will be able to apply for visas at the VFS center of their choice.

A service fee will be charged and will be payable online when making an appointment.

To facilitate the process for students and others who do not live near an application center, a mobile visa application service may be offered.
