Applicants whose profiles were terminated under reforms were selected in Quebec’s latest invitation round
Quebec has invited 444 foreign workers to apply for a Quebec Selection Certificate in a draw held August 19.
The draw targeted Quebec Skilled Worker Program candidates with an Expression of Interest (EOI) in the province’s Arrima system who had their previous applications cancelled under immigration reforms passed on June 16, 2019.
Candidates had to meet the following criteria in order to receive an invitation in the August 19 draw:
Arrima was introduced last year to receive EOIs for the Quebec Skilled Worker Program and manage its bank of candidates.
An EOI is not an application but is instead a way for candidates to notify Quebec’s Immigration Ministry that they would like to be considered for a Quebec Selection Certificate (Certificat de sélection du Québec, or CSQ).
A CSQ allows a candidate to apply for permanent residence in Quebec.
The EOI-based online system replaced the previous, first-come-first-served approach to accepting applications to the Quebec Skilled Worker Program.
Under the EOI system, candidates create a profile in Arima and are awarded a score based on factors including their age, education, area of training, work experience and proficiency in French.
Candidates are invited to apply for a CSQ based on either their scores or other factors such as labour shortages in the province’s outlying regions.
Those who apply for and receive a CSQ then apply for permanent residence through Canada’s federal immigration ministry, which verifies medical and criminal admissibility.
