Published on: December 7th, 2022

At the end of November, the Minister of Immigration, Francization and Integration invited 998 people to apply for permanent selection. Those invited had a score of 603 or higher and had a job offer outside of Montreal. 

This was the 13th draw of 2022. So far a total of 7,041 invitations have been issued so far this year. Many had a job offer outside of Montreal or a score over about 600. There were also many targeted draws for health-care workers and those in IT professions. 

How Do You Apply for the Quebec Regular Skilled Worker Program?

All candidates must demonstrate that they meet the minimum required score on the RSWP points assessment grid. If you have sufficient RSWP points, you can submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) using the Arrima online portal to be considered for the program. The Quebec government will then invite some candidates to submit a complete application for a certificat de sélection du Québec (CSQ – Québec selection certificate).

Upon receiving a CSQ, an applicant becomes eligible to submit an official application for Canadian permanent residence.

Arrima Expression of Interest Points Grid

Once you have submitted an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the Arrima portal, you are given a score that helps to determine your ranking against other candidates.

Quebec then holds regular Arrima draws, in which they invite candidates to apply for a certificat de sélection du Québec (CSQ – Québec selection certificate). In these draws, Quebec will sometimes target a minimum EOI score to determine who receives an invitation.

Quebec uses the below points grid to determine RSWP candidates’ score.
