Skilled Worker Program

  • / Skilled Worker Program

Quebec is the only province in Canada which has the privileged rights to choose their own immigrants. Quebec takes about 20 to 25 % of the total immigrants in Canada every year. Quebec designs their selection system according to the immigration needs of the province and the people who are likely to be established in the province.

Quebec skilled worker program must not be confused with the Federal Skilled worker program. Skilled Worker applicants who intend to reside within the province of Quebec are assessed under a different system than applicants who wish to settle elsewhere in Canada.


Quebec's Expression of Interest System

On August 2, 2018, Quebec's new Expression of Interest System came into effect in order to eliminate the older first come first serve style system. The new expression of interest system can be compared to Federal express of interest program (Express entry). But Quebec program is completely designed according to the Quebec immigration needs and has a completely different Operating style. Interested candidate will have to first express their interest in Quebec Immigration Arrima portal. The expression of interest will be valid for one year.


Arrima portal

Québec Immigration ministry (MIDI) have already launched the Arrima portal have already accepted to take expression of interest from candidate around the world. All potential applicants to the QSWP must first submit an expression of interest for free by completing a profile using the Arrima portal. The Arrima portal will remain open year-round unlike the old system of quote and intake periods. Individuals looking to immigrate to Quebec are now able to submit an expression of interest by making their Arrimaprofile at any time. At frequent intervals, the Quebec immigration ministry (MIDI) will invite the selected candidates for filing the application for Quebec Selection Certificate (CSQ). Once the candidates receive their CSQ, they will then need to file for an application for permanent residence with Federal Government (IRCC). At that point IRCC only looks at your medical and criminal background check since the selection process has already been done by the Quebec government.


Quebec Skilled worker eligibility requirements

In order to qualify for a CSQ, a singleapplicant must score at least 50 points based on this system, while an applicant with a spouse or common-law partner must score at least 59 points.
