Canada’s Quebec has held another round of provincial invitations. This is the 5th Quebec draw to be held this year.
Previously, Quebec received $590,000 for immigrant integration and settlement in the province.
On June 17, 2021, Quebec immigration issued 69 invitations, allowing those invited to submit their application for permanent selection for obtaining a Certificat de sélection du Québec [CSQ], also referred to as a Québec Selection Certificate.
The previous provincial draw by Quebec – also referred to as an Arrima draw – was held on May 27, 2021.

The selection criteria of the present Arrima draw differed from that of the other Quebec draws held so far in 2021.
As per Quebec’s Ministre de l’Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’Intégration [MIFI], invitations in the latest Arrima draw went out to candidates that “had a validated offer of employment”.
The other 4 draws held previously – that is, on May 27, April 29, March 30, and January 26 – also included “persons mentioned in Section 26 of the Québec Immigration Regulation [CQLR], chapter I-0.2.1, r. 3)”.
Effective February 24, 2021, Quebec has updated the list of professions that are eligible for simplified processing.
Quebec is the only province in Canada that is not a part of the Provincial Nominee Program [PNP].
The Express Entry system – managed by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada [IRCC] for the federal government of Canada – is also exclusive of Quebec.
A Canada immigration candidate that secures their Canada PR via IRCC Express Entry can settle anywhere in Canada, except Quebec.
|With the latest provincial draw by Quebec, a total of 545 invitations to apply have been issued by Quebec’s MIFI in the 5 Arrima draws held so far in 2021.|
Quebec plans on issuing between 26,500 to 31,200 CSQs in 2021.
