Greetings from Meharban Overseas!!

Quebec has started issuing its first invitations to Quebec Skilled Worker Program candidates with an Expression of Interest profile in the province’s Arrima system.  

Invited candidates began receiving email notifications on Thursday, July 4. 

Those who received an invitation have 60 days to submit a complete application for a Quebec Selection Certificate(Certificat de sélection du Québec, or CSQ).

The Arrima system was launched in September 2018 to manage the bank of candidates for the Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP). 

Candidates use Arrima to create an Expression of Interest profile that is then submitted into the bank of QSWP candidates. 

The Government of Quebec said the first invitations through Arrima will prioritize candidates who either have a validated job offer with a Quebec employer or who meet one of the following conditions: 

  • had their application for a Quebec Selection Certificate terminated on June 16, 2019, and were a temporary resident of Quebec when they had applied; or
  • had their application for a Quebec Selection Certificate terminated on June 16, 2019, and were working or studying in Quebec at that time.
