Quebec Skilled Worker Program

The Province of Quebec administers its own immigration programs with selection criteria that are distinct and more predictable from those of federal and other provincial immigration programs. Foreign nationals wishing to settle permanently in Quebec must undergo a two-step immigration process: They must be selected by the Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Diversité et de l’Inclusion (MIDI), Quebec’s immigration authority. Selected applicants will receive a Quebec Certificate of Selection (CSQ). An approved CSQ holder must file an application with Canadian federal immigration authorities. The federal government’s role in evaluating a Quebec application for permanent residence is mainly limited to issues of health and criminality.

Expression of Interest System

Starting August 2018, MIDI has implemented an Express of Interest (EOI) system, in an effort to streamline their application process. Interested candidates are now invited to declare their interest to immigrate to Quebec by submitting an online profile to the Quebec’s Expression of Interest Bank (EOIB). The Arrima Portal The new system, Arrima, is directed to individuals interested to immigrate to Quebec under the regular Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP) and it effectively ended the application process under the principle of “first come, first served”. The Arrima portal remains open year-round and candidates are able to submit an EOI at any time, free of charge. Anyone who meets the age requirements, which is 18 years, can submit an EOI profile online. According to MIDI, the selection of candidates from the EOI bank will be based on criteria defining the person’s profile in terms of employability and contribution to the vitality of the French language.

More specifically, the invitations are based on three main categories:

  • Human capital (age, proficiency in French, level of education, etc.)
  • Ability to find a job in Québec (having a validated job offer, having earned a degree in Québec, or having temporary worker status with at least six months work experience in Québec)
  • Changing needs of the job market (areas of training associated with fields experiencing labour shortages)
