If you have received an invitation in the latest draw, you will receive a communication in your Arrima message centre with the information needed to access the form - and submit an application for permanent selection.

If you are still in the bank waiting for an invitation, it is important to regularly update your Expression of Interest (EOI). You may receive an invitation to submit your permanent selection application at any time.

Quebec RSWP draws in 2023

Quebec's Ministry of Immigration, Frenchisation, and Integration (MIFI) conducts invitation rounds on a bi-weekly basis. Candidates whose profiles correspond to Quebec’s needs and application inventory - and have good potential for integration are invited to submit an application for permanent selection.

Profiles are evaluated based on the selection grid criteria used by the Quebec government to assess their eligibility for the RSWP. This includes factors such as Education, Work Experience, Age, Language Proficiency in French and/or English, and other criteria that are specific to the Quebec RSWP.

This was the 17th RSWP draw conducted by Quebec in 2023. The latest draw is a continuation of Quebec issuing high invites with low scores. The back-to-back draws indicate that the province seeks to increase the number of candidates eligible to receive an invitation under Quebec immigration streams.

One distinct feature of Quebec RSWP draws is that it requires candidates to demonstrate their intention to live and work in Quebec. This involves signing a "Declaration of Interest" (DI) with the Quebec government. Quebec's autonomy in immigration policy means that the province has its own immigration selection process, separate from the federal system used in other provinces. This allows Quebec to select individuals who are best suited to its economic and social needs.
