“Quebec’s Latest Immigration Draw Lowers Minimum Score: 1,470 Invited for Permanent Residency”

Quebec RSWP Draw

In the latest Quebec draw, held on June 20, 2024, a total of 1,470 candidates were invited to apply for permanent residency. This draw saw a minimum score requirement of 585 points, marking a notable decrease from prior draws, which typically had higher cut-off scores. For example, the draw on June 6, 2024, required a minimum score of 587, and the draw on May 30, 2024, had a cut-off score of 591. 

This draw is part of Quebec’s Regular Skilled Worker Program (RSWP), which selects candidates based on a variety of criteria, including language proficiency, job offers, and work experience. The program emphasizes French language proficiency and often prioritizes candidates with job offers outside the Montreal Metropolitan Community. 

The trend of lowering the minimum score in Quebec’s draws reflects the province’s intention to broaden the pool of eligible candidates, thereby attracting a diverse range of skilled workers. This approach aligns with Quebec’s ongoing efforts to address labor market needs and promote economic growth in different regions of the province. 

The Arrima system, which Quebec uses for these draws, is designed to manage the intake of skilled worker applications more efficiently. Candidates submit an expression of interest, and those who meet the specific criteria set for each draw are invited to apply for a Certificate de selection du Québec (CSQ), a crucial step towards obtaining permanent residency in Quebec. 

In the broader context, Quebec has been active in issuing invitations throughout 2024. For instance, earlier draws in the year included: 

  • June 6, 2024: 1,281 invitations with a minimum score of 587. 
  • May 30, 2024: 1,441 invitations with a minimum score of 591. 
  • May 23, 2024: 1,350 invitations with a minimum score of 593

Each of these draws underscores Quebec’s strategy to regularly invite skilled workers and address specific labor market demands by adjusting the score thresholds and targeting different occupational groups. The regularity and frequency of these draws, often bi-weekly, indicate Quebec’s commitment to maintaining a robust immigration pipeline that aligns with the province’s economic and demographic objectives.
