Quebec has begun issuing its first round of invites to Quebec Skilled Worker Program applicants with an Expression of Interest profile in the area’s Arrima framework. All those applicants who have issued ITAs have started accepting email notices on Thursday, July 4.
The individuals selected will now be provided with 60 days to present a total application for a Quebec Selection Certificate (Certificat de sélection du Québec, or CSQ).
What is Arrima framework?
The Arrima framework was propelled in September 2018 to deal with the pool of applicants for the Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP). All the immigration lookers use Arrima to make an Expression of Interest profile that is then submitted into the pool of QSWP competitors.
The Government of Quebec said the invites majorly through Arrima would organize competitors who either have an approved offer of employment from a Quebec manager or firm or who meet one of the following written conditions:
- Had their application for a Quebec Selection Certificate ended as on June 16, 2019, and were an impermanent occupant of Quebec when they had applied for; or
- Had their application for a Quebec Selection Certificate ended as on June 16, 2019, and were working or planning to be in Quebec around then.
June 16, 2019, was the date when changes to Quebec’s immigration laws were passed that dropped around 16,000 pending applications to the QSWP. The dropped applications had all been recorded before the presentation of Arrima, which Quebec’s Immigration Ministry (MIDI) says is progressively helpful for coordinating with applicants to the particular work needs of firms around the region of Quebec.
Competitors who can be categorized as one of the two organized groups influenced by the changes and who have not yet made an Arrima profile have time left until December 16, 2019, to make one in case that they wish to be invited to apply for a CSQ.
