French-Speaking Skilled Worker

Being fluent in French can prove to be quite advantageous if you are trying to become a permanent resident in Canada. Ontario’s French-Speaking Skilled Worker (FSSW) stream under the Express Entry system caters to French-speaking candidates who would like to secure provincial nominations from the province. The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) stream was introduced by Canada to make it easier for provinces and territories to invite skilled candidates who can fill labor gaps and the FSSW operates as an enhanced PNP.

Details of the draw

The most recent draw for French-speaking candidates was held by Ontario on October 7, and a total of 162 candidates received invitations to apply for provincial nomination. It was the fourth FSSW draw of 2021. Ontario has now issued 651 invitations via the stream this year.

The selected candidates will now have the opportunity to immigrate to Canada via the French-Speaking Skilled Worker (FSSW). The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score for candidates to get invited in this draw ranged between 461 and 467. They also had to be registered in the Express Entry pool with a complete profile.

This is because provincial nominees are automatically awarded an extra 600 CRS points.
