Quebec’s Regular Skilled Worker Program Process
Understanding the Regular Skilled Worker Program in Quebec involves registering your Expression of Interest (EOI) on Arrima, where it becomes part of the EOI bank. From this pool, candidates whose profiles align with Québec’s needs and exhibit a strong potential for French integration are invited to submit a permanent selection application.
Upon receiving an invitation, applicants will be notified through the Arrima message center, where they can access essential information to complete the form and submit the application for permanent selection.
It’s crucial to note that invitations for permanent selection can be issued at any point, emphasizing the importance of regularly updating your Expression of Interest.
The first Arrima draw of the year showcases the province’s commitment to selecting candidates with specific skills and language proficiency, aligning with Quebec immigration goals.
