Quebec Invites 1,281 Skilled Workers in Latest Arrima Draw

Quebec’s commitment to attracting skilled workers remains steadfast as the province conducts its 66th invitation round through the Arrima system. On June 17, 2024, the Quebec Ministry of Immigration (MIFI) announced the results of its latest draw, extending invitations to 1,281 candidates to apply for Quebec Selection Certificates under the Quebec Skilled Worker Program.

The June 6 draw maintained Quebec’s focus on French-speaking candidates with strong employability prospects. Invited candidates met a minimum score threshold of 587 points, demonstrating their potential to contribute significantly to Quebec’s workforce. Additionally, these individuals possessed at least level 7 oral proficiency in French, underscoring the province’s commitment to preserving its linguistic character.

In a strategic move to promote regional development, the invitations were exclusively extended to candidates with valid job offers outside the Montreal Metropolitan Community. This approach aims to distribute skilled workers across the province, addressing labor shortages in various regions and fostering economic growth beyond Quebec’s largest urban center.

“Our goal is to attract talent that can thrive across Quebec,” said Immigration Minister. “By focusing on French-speaking candidates with job offers outside Montreal, we’re ensuring that the benefits of immigration are felt throughout our province.”

The latest round brings the total number of invitations issued through Arrima in 2024 to an impressive 12,064. This figure reflects Quebec’s proactive approach to addressing its labor market needs and demographic challenges through targeted immigration.
