Quebec Immigration

The Arrima Immigration Draw forms a vital component of Quebec’s immigration strategy, serving as a selection tool under the Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP). During each draw, applicants meeting specified criteria undergo assessment, with scores determined based on factors such as education, work experience, language proficiency, and age. Those with the highest scores receive invitations to apply for permanent residency in Quebec, contributing to the enrichment of the province’s skilled workforce.


Next Steps: Document Submission and Fee Payment

Upon submission of their PR applications, candidates will receive a personalized list of required supporting documents from the Ministry of Immigration, Francization, and Integration (MIFI). Additionally, applicants will be provided with an application to obtain an attestation of learning about democratic values and Québec values. It’s important to note that the processing of applications will commence only upon receipt of all necessary documents.
