Quebec finally started to send ITAs to Arrima candidates
On June 4, the Government of Quebec issued first invitations to apply to the candidates via the new online selections systems Arrima. The first invitations are being sent to the candidates under the Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSW) candidates. Invited candidates have 60 days to submit their application for a Quebec Selection Certificate. As was stated earlier by the authorities, Quebec will send the first ITAs to those who have a valid job offer in Quebec, or to the candidates who applied before August 2, 2018 and whose paper applications were cancelled as a result of Bill 9, if they were a temporary resident of Quebec or were working or studying in Quebec on June 16, 2019, when the new Immigration Act got a Royal Assent.
