Quebec Expression of Interest Points System

The points system used to rank profiles submitted via Arrima considers various factors related to human capital and the Quebec labor market. Candidates and their spouses or common-law partners can score up to 1,320 points based on factors such as language ability, age, work experience, education, and more.

Requirements for Quebec Expression of Interest

The Quebec Expression of Interest system assesses candidates based on two categories: human capital factors and Quebec labor market factors. Points are awarded for factors such as French language ability, work experience in Quebec, job offers inside or outside Greater Montreal, and qualifications in Quebec’s areas of training.

Quebec’s targeted Arrima immigration draws aim to address specific labor market needs, attracting skilled professionals who can contribute to the province’s economic growth and diversity. The Expression of Interest system provides a transparent and efficient way for candidates to showcase their qualifications and potentially secure Canadian permanent residency.
