The province of Quebec recently revealed the details of an invitation round held on September 4, 2019, in which 32 candidates with an Arrima profile were invited.
The invitations were issued to candidates who had an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile and a valid job offer, as well as foreign nationals working as diplomats, consular officers, representatives of an intergovernmental organization such as the United Nations in Quebec.
The latest Quebec draw marked a significant drop as compared to the previous draws. The July 17 draw, which had similar eligibility requirements, issued 259 Invitations to Apply (ITA) for permanent selection.
The Quebec province came up with the Arrima system back in September 2018, in order to handle the pool of candidates under the Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP). The candidates are supposed to use the Arrima when creating their Expression of Interest profile. This is then submitted in the bank of candidates who are registered in the QSWP. When the candidates create their EOI profile in Arrima, then they are issued a score based on human capital factors such as age, education information, area of training, work experience, and French proficiency. Candidates are then invited to apply for a CSQ based on either their scores or other factors such as labour shortages in the province’s regions. Once the candidate receives a CSQ, they can apply for a permanent residence through Canada’s federal immigration ministry.
