What is Quebec Arrima Draws? 

Modelled after the federal Express Entry system, Arrima system was introduced in 2018 as a dedicated online portal to submit EOI to immigrate to Quebec under the Skilled Worker Program.

Under the new EOI system for Quebec immigration, interested candidates create a profile in Arrima. 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 a 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 labour shortages in the province’s outlying regions. Those who apply for and receive a CSQ are required to apply for permanent residence through Canada’s federal Immigration Ministry that verifies medical and criminal admissibility.

Quebec province in Canada has a huge demand for skilled workers and international students. Quebec aims to process complete applications within 6 months.
