Arrima is an online platform that manages the Quebec’s Expression of Interest profiles. The system also allows Quebec companies to connect directly with candidates in the Arrima pool to meet their labour needs.
Arrima manages profiles through the following four Quebec programs:
Quebec has a special agreement with the federal government that allows the province more autonomy in immigration policies and procedures.
The Quebec Regular Skilled Worker Program (RSWP) is an immigration program operated by the province of Quebec. The program is aimed at skilled workers that intend to reside in the province of Quebec.
According to Quebec’s immigration plan, the province could admit up to 70,000 newcomers in 2022. This is the highest immigration level targeted to date. About 65% of admissions this year will likely be economic programs, such as the Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP) and the Quebec Experience Program (QEP).
In 2021, Quebec issued a total of 3,564 invitations to Quebec Skilled Workers (QSW) through the Arrima portal. In 2020, just 628 invitations were issued for the whole year.
