Quebec invites 208 in second Arrima draw


On March 30, Quebec – a great Canadian province, invited 208 promising immigration candidates to apply for a permanent selection.
The Ministry of Immigration, Frenchisation and Integration (Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’Intégration) invited these applicants in the context of RSWP (Regular Skilled Worker Program) who had filed an EOI (Expression of Interest) in Arrima – an online registration portal of Quebec.

In the latest round, the following two categories of candidates are invited:
Candidates with a validated employment offer
Those applicants who were in Quebec as a consular officer, diplomat, UN (United Nations) representative, a representative of any intergovernmental company with activities in the province, and their staff.

This draw was more than twice bigger than the first which occurred in January where the province issued 95 invitations.

The immigration programs of Quebec are handled by the province predicated on processes and standards that are clear from the immigration programs of Canada. Lastly, the decision is up to Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada.

About Arrima

In 2018, Arrima was introduced to streamline an application intake approach that was previously founded on a “first-come, first-served”. In other words, it is a procedure to handle the candidates pool for the Regular Skilled Worker Program.

So, all the candidates in the age of 18 or more if want to immigrate to Quebec through the RSWP first need to create an EOI profile in Arrima. After this, they are arrayed in the candidate pool.

Then MIFI invites the most skilled candidates based on certain criteria, current needs of provincial market labor, and the potential to integrate into Quebec society.

Generally, candidates who are invited to apply for permanent selection have 60 days to pay the necessary fees, submit a complete immigration application, and demonstrate all other needed documents.

Quebec intends to welcome around 47,500 new arrivals in 2021. If you received an invitation to apply for a Quebec Selection Certificate, you need to email to know about the next steps.
