luckily for those interested in settling in Quebec, the process is relatively simple. Like other Canadian provinces, candidates primarily work through an expression-of-interest system.
They first submit an expression-of-interest profile via the Arrima online platform. All profiles submitted will be entered into a pool where candidates are ranked against each other using a points system. These profiles remain valid for 12 months.
Candidates are scored on two categories – human capital factors and labor market factors. Human capital factors include language ability, age, education and work experience.
Labor market factors are slightly more specific, examining aspects such as professional experience in Quebec, possession of a job offer inside or outside Greater Montreal, work experience in a field with labor shortage and others.
The highest-ranking candidates will then be invited to apply for a Quebec certificate of selection under the Quebec skilled worker program. Those selected will have 60 days to submit a full application following receiving an invitation.
Finally, the approved candidates will receive a nomination certificate and apply to the federal government for permanent residence.
