Apply for Quebec Immigration with CanApprove

Arrima system is a dedicated online portal to submit EOI for Quebec immigration under the Skilled Worker Program. It is modeled after the federal Express Entry system. 

Equivalent to the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) in the federal Express Entry system, candidates are ranked in Arrima based on score which is dependent on factors such as their age, education, proficiency in French, area of training, and work experience. 

Technically, an EOI is not regarded as an application but is only a way for interested candidates to notify the Government of Quebec that they would like to be considered for the Quebec Selection Certificate (Certificat de sélection du Québec, or CSQ). 

Eligible candidates are invited to apply for a CSQ based on either their scores or other factors such as labor shortages in the province’s outlying regions. Those who apply for and receive a CSQ are required to apply for Canadian permanent residency through the federal Immigration Ministry which verifies medical and criminal admissibility.
