Details Regarding Arrima

Arrima was initiated in 2018 for managing the candidates’ bank for QSWP after there was a shift in the program from the application based on a paper to the timing of arrival approach in the system of Expression of Interest. This system manages the candidates’ bank to get the Quebec Selection Certificate necessary for applying to get provincial permanent residence through QSWP.

Candidates state the interest after creating the Arrima, profile that later goes to the candidates’ pool and gets a rank calculated on the score and other criteria. Then the Immigration Ministry issues ITAs for CSQ calculated on the score and other factors like the labor needs in rural areas. Finally, the Candidates receiving the CSQ can seek permanent residence with federal immigration authorities of Canada that has the task of verifying admissibility based on medical and non-criminal factors.
