September 30 Arrima draw

A total of 536 immigration candidates received invitations in Quebec’s Arrima draw held on September 30. Quebec had earlier conducted another draw in the same month. Arrima draw exclusively targets candidates belonging to the Quebec Regular Skilled Worker Program (QSWP) and in the latest draw, candidates required to score at least 562 points to receive an invitation. The invited candidates may now apply for permanent selection from Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’Intégration (MIFI).

Candidates with a valid job offer outside the Montreal Metropolitan Area and who work in occupations that are in demand in Quebec also received invitations in the latest draw. The targeted occupations in the draw were:

  • Registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses (NOC 0312);
  • Licensed practical nurses (NOC 3233);
  • Nurse aides, orderlies and patient service associates (NOC 3413);
  • Secondary school teachers (NOC 4031);
  • Elementary school and kindergarten teachers (NOC 4032);
  • Early childhood educators and assistants (NOC 4214);

Earlier this year, Quebec had been holding Arrima draws once in every month. But in the month of August, Quebec conducted Arrima draws on a weekly basis and issued a record number of invitations. The number of candidates invited in these draws exceeded 500.

The latest draw held on September 30 is the tenth draw being held this year and so far in 2021, Quebec has invited a total of 3200 candidates.

Quebec Regular Skilled Worker Program

The Quebec Regular Skilled Worker Program allows the province to select candidates who have the ability and skills to economically establish themselves in the province. Those who have received invitations in the September 30 draw may submit the complete application for permanent selection within 60 days. The processing of these applications is expected to be completed within six months. The selected candidates will be issued a Certificat de sélection du Québec (CSQ or Quebec Selection Certificate) with which, they may apply for permanent residence in Canada.

It has to be noted that Quebec’s immigration programs are distinct from Canada’s federal programs and the applications are assessed under a different system.
