Navigating the Quebec Skilled Worker Program: Insights from the Latest Arrima Draw

Quebec Skilled Worker Program

The Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP) has long been a beacon of hope for skilled workers aiming to make Quebec their new home. The program, managed by the Quebec Ministry of Immigration (MIFI), provides a pathway for skilled workers to obtain a Quebec Selection Certificate, a crucial step towards permanent residency in the province.

On October 26, 2023, MIFI conducted the 54th invitation round in Quebec’s online system Arrima, inviting 1,220 candidates to apply for a Quebec Selection Certificate under the Quebec Skilled Worker Program. The candidates invited in this round had a minimum score of 465, at least level 7 oral proficiency in French, and a valid job offer outside the territory of the Montreal Metropolitan Community. This year, MIFI has invited a total of 15,979 candidates through the regular Arrima draws, showcasing the program's commitment to attracting skilled talent to the province.

The Quebec Skilled Worker Program is governed by a points-based system, where candidates are awarded points based on various criteria such as age, education, work experience, language proficiency, and more. The program's criteria and points system are detailed in the official publications of the Quebec government, which can be found here and here.

Language proficiency, particularly in French, is a significant factor in the Quebec Skilled Worker Program. Candidates must demonstrate their language skills through standardized tests, and the required proficiency levels are outlined in the NM scale of language proficiency levels. In the latest Arrima draw, candidates needed at least level 7 oral proficiency in French to be invited.

The Arrima system is an essential tool for candidates applying to the Quebec Skilled Worker Program. It allows candidates to create a profile, enter their information, and receive an invitation to apply based on their eligibility and the program's requirements. The Arrima system also features a points calculator that helps candidates understand their potential score and eligibility for the program.

In conclusion, the Quebec Skilled Worker Program is a valuable opportunity for skilled workers seeking to make Quebec their new home. The program's points-based system, language proficiency requirements, and the Arrima system are all critical components that candidates must navigate to be successful.
