Quebec launches direct employer-immigrant recruitment portal

By CIC News |

New portal allows employers to have direct access to potential candidates already in Québec or abroad and to benefit from personalized support offered by an immigration advisor.

A new feature of the Employer Portal allows businesses to recruit immigrant job seekers in Quebec and abroad using data from the Arrima system.

Quebec’s Minister of Immigration, Francization and Integration, Nadine Girault, made the announcement on November 5.

It was also on that date that the new functionality of the Employer Portal, a service offered by the Quebec Ministry of Immigration, was made available to businesses.

Designed to facilitate the selection of the people who best meet current labour market needs in the province, the new feature will allow businesses to go directly to the ministry’s website, consult the profiles of immigration candidates, offer them a job and help initiate the immigration process.

Companies registered in the Registraire des Entreprises Québec (Enterprise Register) will be able to recruit immigrants or people from ethnocultural minorities established in Quebec, international students who have graduated from Quebec with a post-graduate work permit, or temporary or permanent workers from abroad.
