37. Despite section 13, the Minister may consent to the stay of a foreign national who does not meet a condition of a program under which the foreign national’s application is examined. The conditions the Minister may override are prescribed by government regulation.
In addition, the Minister may refuse to consent to the stay of a foreign national who meets all the conditions prescribed by regulation if the Minister has reasonable grounds to believe that the foreign national’s stay in Québec would be contrary to the public interest.
