Quebec holds biggest Arrima draw of the year

Quebec invited 515 immigration candidates to apply for permanent selection


The Quebec immigration department carried out the first round of invitations through Arrima based on the new expression of interest scoring system it introduced in July.


The Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’Intégration (MIFI) invited candidates under the Quebec Regular Skilled Worker Program  (also refered to as the Quebec Skilled Worker Program or QSWP) who had filed an Expression of Interest (EOI) in Quebec’s online registration portal, Arrima.


An EOI is a way for candidates to notify Quebec’s Ministry of Immigration that they would like to be considered for a Quebec Selection Certificate or CSQ. When they receive a CSQ candidates can apply for permanent residence with the federal government.


Invited candidates fell into the following categories:


·      Their occupation is on the list of targeted occupations and they had a score of at least 591 points in the Arrima expression of interest bank;

·      They have a valid job offer outside the territory of the Montreal Metropolitan Area;

·      They reside in Quebec as a diplomat, consular official, United Nations representative or representative of any intergovernmental organization operating in the province, and their staff ;

·      They are self-employed.

 

There were 1060 candidates invited to submit an application for permanent selection by the province in 2021.

Arrima portal:

Arrima was introduced in 2018 to manage the pool of applicants for the RSWP and to simplify an application intake system that was formerly based on a “first-come, first-served” approach.

Candidates 18 years of age and older interested in immigrating to Quebec through the RSWP must first create an EOI profile in Arrima, after which they are placed in a pool of candidates and given score based on a list of criteria.

In July, Quebec launched a new points system to rank the profiles of immigration candidates in the Arrima expression of interest pool. Up to 1,320 points are available, of which 580 are for human capital factors and 740 for factors related to Quebec’s labour market needs.

The human capital criteria include French language ability, bilingual ability, age, work experience, and education.
