The permission for a Canada immigration candidate to settle in Quebec permanently is granted if their application is approved. After approval, a CSQ is awarded to them. The CSQ (Certificat de Sélection du Québec) or Quebec Selection Certificate is a document issued by MIFI to declare that a particular immigration applicant has been selected to settle in Quebec.
Holding a CSQ, you can apply for Canada PR visa to the federal immigration authorities (IRCC). Quebec can choose immigrants as per its own criteria. However, it can't grant applicants a Canada PR visa. So, you mustn’t take CSQ as a permanent residence visa. CSQ also can’t be used to enter Canada.
The validity of CSQ is either 24 months or the time taken by IRCC to make a decision on an application for Canada PR. Every CSQ issued before August 2, 2018, will have the older duration of validity which is 36 months.
Arrima is an online platform used by the Government of Quebec to provide foreign nationals who wish to immigrate to Quebec, a wide range of services. Arrima is available to use completely free and open to anyone who’s interested in immigrating to Quebec.
