The paper-based applications will last be accepted until 25th January 2021. After that date, it will all PEQ applications will be submitted through an online process only. This is a huge change that has taken place in Quebec immigration in 2021.

The Quebec Foreign Student Program who has been using the immigration platform since the spring of 2020, will also have to adhere to the same mandatory online submission process as of 26th January 2021.

The Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’Intégration (MIFI), has that the submission of required documents will be electronic under three new permanent immigration pilot projects. These are the health, computer, and food processing sectors.

What is the Arrima portal for Quebec Immigration?

MIFI uses Arrima, which is an online platform. Originally, it was the Quebec province that introduced Arrima to collect expressions of interests (EOI) from foreign nationals who wanted to immigrate to Quebec through the Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP).

The Arrima portal will assess the submitted profiles based on factors such as education, language skills, and work experience. The Eligible individuals for immigration are invited to apply for a Quebec Selection Certificate (Certificat de sélection du Québec, or CSQ).

Arrima was launched in 2019 to speed up the immigration process and meet the labor market needs. Before the Arrima, Quebec’s immigration system was conducted based on a first-come, first-served basis. In the last two years, the Quebec province has expanded this platform to include other programs and added new functionalities.

Now, the Arrima portal is available for QSWP applicants and also to foreigners seeking to settle in Quebec permanently or temporarily with the use of the Quebec International Student Program and the PEQ.

What is the Immigration levels expected in Quebec?

Quebec province has set the target of up to 47,500 newcomers in 2021. The province’s new targets are higher than the 2020 target when Quebec is expected to welcome up to 44,500 newcomers. However, in 2020 Quebec fell short of this target. In 2021 The province, therefore, plans to make up for this immigration target shortage.
