Details were released by Quebec’s Ministry of Immigration for their round of draws that were held on September 25th that invited a total of 32 candidates with Arrima profiles.
Candidates that were invited in this draw had an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile and a job offer from an eligible employer of the province, as well as immigrants working as diplomats, consular officers, or representatives of an intergovernmental organization such as United Nations in Quebec.
Draw size has significantly been lowered when compared to previous draws. Provincial draw that was held on 17th July, with the same eligibility requirements, sees a total of 259 Invitation to Apply (ITAs) for permanent selection issued.
Province of Quebec introduced the Arrima portal in 2018, to receive EOI profiles for Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP) and manage profile of the candidates. EOI is a way that allows the candidates to notify Quebec’s Ministry of Immigration that they are interested in moving to the province and would like to be considered for Quebec Selection Certificate (CSQ). Through a CSQ, candidates are able to apply for Canada PR Visa to the Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
In the EOI system, candidates are allowed to create their profiles in the Arrima portal, where points are awarded to the candidate’s profile based on human capital factors that include age, area of training, educational qualification, French language proficiency, and Work Experience.
Through frequent held Quebec’s provincial draw, candidates are invited based on their profile score or based on other factors such as labour shortages in the province’s outlying regions.
