Quebec's Arrima Issues First Invitations to Apply
On July 4, the Quebec Government issued the first Invitations to Apply under its new online selection system Arrima. The invitations were sent to the candidates who are seeking to immigrate to Quebec under the Quebec Skilled Worker Program. Invited candidates have 60 days to submit their application for a Quebec Selection Certificate (CSQ). At this time, Quebec is prioritizing Arrima candidates with a valid job offer in Quebec or those who applied for a CSQ before August 2, 2018 and whose paper applications were cancelled as a result of Bill 9, provided that they were temporary residents of Quebec or were working or studying in Quebec on June 16, 2019.
