The first step in becoming a permanent resident of Quebec is declaring that you want to do so. Quebec then extends invitations to those who they believe have the education and experience necessary to successfully integrate into the province’s workforce.
1 – The Arrima Portal is where Quebec hosts its invitational rounds. Thus, the Arrima draw is synonymous with Quebec’s provincial lotteries.
2 – The QSWP is where qualified workers can submit their applications for the CSQ, or the Quebec Selection Certificate. Migrants to Quebec are not required to have a current employment offer in order to apply. Those who already have a job offer, however, are prioritised.
3 – Similar to the Express Entry System, the QSWP uses a point system to determine eligibility.
4 – The federal Express Entry system and the Canadian PNP do not include Quebec.
