The new Immigration system for Quebec will drastically reduce wait times for prospective newcomers and better fill the need of employers
The Quebec Immigration Minister Simon Jolin-Barrette officially launched Quebec’s new immigration selection system ‘Arrima’ on 27 June 2019. The new system will drastically reduce wait times for prospective newcomers and better fill the needs of employers suffering from a labour shortage ranked amongst the worst in Canada.
The Quebec Immigration system switched to Arrima that was already in use in other provinces. This system will help the province fill around 120,000 job vacancies. The new system represents “a major turning point” in the immigration selection process in Quebec because it will better the needs of employers throughout the province and shorten the waiting time for prospective immigrants awaiting permission to work in the province from three years down to six months.
Among the 18,000 who had filed applications, the government will prioritize 3,700 individuals who had already requested a permanent Quebec Selection Certificate while they were in the process of immigrating. The applicants who have labour skills that respond to Quebec needs will be selected.
The potential applicants willing to apply for Quebec under regular skilled worker program must go through Arrima, an online portal where an applicant must fill out an expression of interest form by mentioning about training, education, language skills, and work experience. The Quebec Ministry will review the pool of applicants and issue invitations based on labour market needs in different regions of the province.
After the request for permanent selection is submitted the applicants will face a six-month waiting time for their application selection. Under the previous system that was based on first-come, first-serve as opposed to the employment needs, the waiting time could stretch to three years.
The new system will be available in the early 2020s where the employers can see candidates profile and contact them via email to offer them employment improving their chance for canada permanent residency.

This is in regard to my journey with Aptechvisa Services. I have experienced here were so far better and I already recommended my multiple friends to them because I can trust their words. I got Aptech visa reference through one of my best friend and today I am in Canada and this all happened just because of Aptech visa.
This is a time to appreciate the performance of Aptech visa. True, Genuine, professional and what not, this is the immigration consultancy to whom we can trust blindly. Due to my age factor I did not score well but more than 400 and this made myself eligible for Ontario and my consultant worked hard in my profile and made it true.
Hope you all are reading my message with Great Spirit. I would rate Aptech 10 out of 10. In between of my application, I have faced a lot of issues in arranging documents but everything went well and there was a continuous support of Aptech which motivated me everything and today I am in Canada, Ontario. Thank you Aptech
Aptech is the best immigration consultant and the staff is of very friendly nature. Since I was there in US, so it was very difficult for me to coordinate with them but they always answered my queries very promptly and meantime, my father was there every time to support me. With the help of Aptech and my father, we got our PR visa for Canada. I am feeling so lucky to be associated with Aptech.
Here we would like to Thank you Aptech visa for all the assistance and help which we have received in our Canada PR visa application throughout the process. They helped me a lot in every manner and it would be an honor if I would say something good about Aptech visa. You guys are really hard working.
Mine was the wonderful journey with Aptech throughout the process. I enjoyed working with them and I would really recommend Aptech to all of you. I have also given a lot of references and in future also will try to refer Aptech to all my known and relatives.
My son has applied for PR visa through Aptech and then he decided to apply for my tourist visa from Aptech only and you can’t believe that I got my visa within 24 hours after applying for the online application. I would really appreciate the work out done by Aptech Global in our applications. Keep working hard guys.
Due to some corrections in my passport, it took more time for me to get the visa but Aptech handled all the things very precisely and smartly. They keep on coordinating with High Commission for my application and did all the conversation on time. Thank you for supporting me.
