Quebec invites 90 foreign workers to apply for permanent selection

Posted on 2021-05-05

Quebec invited 90 immigration candidates to apply for permanent selection on May 27.

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

There were two categories of candidates invited in the latest round:

  • those who had a validated job offer; and
  • those who were in Quebec as a diplomat, consular officer, United Nations representative, or a representative of any intergovernmental organization with operations in the province, and their staff.

The new draw is the fourth of the year held by Quebec. The other draws were held on January 26, March 30, and April 29. A total of 476 candidates have now been invited to submit an application for permanent selection by the province in 2021.

Quebec’s immigration programs are managed by the province based on selection criteria and processes that are distinct from Canada’s immigration programs. Ultimately, it is up to Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada to make the final decision on immigration applications.

About Arrima
Under the current system, a foreign national who wishes to apply for permanent selection under the RSWP must first register an Expression of Interest (EOI) in Arrima.
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 create an EOI profile in Arrima, after which they are placed in a pool of candidates.
MIFI then invites the most qualified candidates based on, among other criteria, current provincial market labour needs and the person’s strong potential to integrate into Quebec society.
Those invited to apply for permanent selection generally have 60 days to submit a complete immigration application, pay the required fees and present all other required documents.
