The new online portal for the Quebec Skilled Worker Program, known as Arrima, is in service effective September 2018. Candidates who are interested in obtaining Canadian permanent residence through the Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP) can express their interest to the Government of Quebec by creating a profile using Arrima.
As a first step, any candidate that is 18-years or older can submit a profile. Profiles in the bank will receive a score based on factors including work experience, education, language proficiency, financial self-sufficiency, and others. In order to be considered, all profiles will have to meet the minimum required score of two points in education and one point for financial self-sufficiency.
In a second step, profiles that meet the initial requirements must then meet the required cut-off score of 43 points for a grouping of factors called Employability, which is based on the candidate’s score in education, work experience, age, language proficiency, etc. The Employability cut-off score for candidates with spouse is 52.
In the third step, candidates who meet the Employability cut-off score must then meet the minimum threshold under a grouping of factors called Selection, which is a passing score of 50 points (59 with spouse).
The Quebec Immigration selection factors may be summarized as follows:
||Up to 14 points
|Area Of Training
||Up to 12 points
||Up to 8 points
||Up to 16 points
||Up to 22 points
||Up to 17 points
|Presence Of Accompanying Children
||Up to 8 points
It's important to note that meeting the minimum threshold of 50 points under the Selection does not necessarily mean a candidate will be invited to apply for a Quebec Selection Certificate or CSQ. Candidates who are invited to apply for a CSQ will have 90 days to submit their application. Anyone who receives a CSQ can then for permanent residence.
Whereas immigration to other Canadian provinces and territories is managed jointly with Canada's federal government, Quebec’s immigration system is largely independent and only relies on the Government of Canada to approve the candidates it selects for temporary or permanent residence.
