The Quebec Immigration Ministry has issued information on a January 13 immigration draw. On January 13, Quebec asked 512 qualified employees to apply for permanent selection. These immigration candidates were invited to apply under the Quebec Regular Skilled Worker Program by the Ministry of Immigration, Francisation, and Integration (MIFI) (QSWP).
Invited applicants are required to have profiles in the Arrima pool with at least 602 points and work in one of the 21 targeted occupations:
The most recent draw is Quebec's first of the season. In 2021, the province asked 3,564 applicants to apply for permanent selection through Arrima. The Quebec Regular Skilled Worker Program is intended for skilled employees who are more likely to establish a business in Quebec. The programme is popular among skilled workers and international graduates who desire to work permanently in Quebec.
Candidates invited to apply for permanent selection have 60 days to submit their applications and pay processing fees. Quebec plans to complete full applications within six months of receiving all necessary information. This category includes all forms and paperwork.
Successful candidates will receive a CSQ or Quebec Selection Certificate. They can then use this certificate to apply for permanent residency to the Canadian federal government. Applicants who want to settle in Quebec are evaluated differently from those who wish to settle elsewhere in Canada. This is because Quebec's immigration policies are separate from Canada's federal programmes and are controlled by the state.
Concerning the Quebec admission objectives for 2022, Quebec revealed its immigrant admission targets for 2022 in October 2021. The majority of entrants are projected to arrive through the province's economic immigration programmes, such as the Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP) and the Quebec experience programme.
The plan asks for 49,500 to 52,500 immigrants across all immigration categories in 2022, with an extra 18,000 admissions to meet the admission levels that the federal government did not meet in 2020 due to the COVID-19 epidemic. This suggests that more than 70,000 newcomers may be accepted to Quebec in 2022.
