Quebec will soon commence issuing invitations to candidates under the Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP), who have registered an Expression of Interest (EOI) through its online system Arrima, according to the province’s immigration minister.

The Arrima portal was introduced last year, to process EOIs for Quebec’s skilled worker program.

An EOI is a way potential immigrations can notify the Quebec government that they wish to be considered for a Quebec Selection Certificate (Certificat de sélection du Québec, or CSQ).

An estimated 100,000 EOIs have been filed since Arrima was launched last September.

Under the EOI system, candidates create a profile in Arrima and are awarded a score based on a number of factors, such as language skills, age, education, etc.

Candidates are encouraged to apply for a CSQ based on their score, or based on factors such as filling job shortages in specific regions in the province. Those who receive a CSQ can apply for permanent residence.

The Government of Quebec will issue first invitations to candidates who:

  • previously applied for a selection certificate under the QSWP, and were a temporary resident at the time of their application;
  • had applied for a CSQ in the Quebec Skilled Worker Program and were in Quebec as of June 16, 2019;
  • hold a valid job offer from a Quebec employer.
