IRCC has issued its #273th Express Entry Draw to French-speaking professionals. It is the 6th Express Entry Draw of 2023, which has sent Invitations To Apply to French-speaking skilled workers overseas.
The number of invitations has declined steadily over the past few months while the C.R.S. cut-off has been increasing. This suggests it is becoming more difficult for French-speaking workers to immigrate to Canada through the Express Entry program.
Despite this, there are still many opportunities for French-speaking workers in Canada. The Canadian government is committed to supporting bilingualism and multiculturalism, and there is a high demand for French-speaking workers in many sectors, including healthcare, education, and government.
Last French language-specific Express Entry Draw?
Express Entry Draw #270 was the last express entry draw specifically for French-speaking professionals on October 25, 2023, where IRCC issued 300 invitations with a minimum C.R.S. score of 486.
Does the Express Entry C.R.S. threshold increase from the last draw?
No, in the last express entry draw, the C.R.S. score of the lowest ranked candidate was 486 but in this draw (#273), the C.R.S. score is 470, with an increased invitation to international skilled workers.
Which Canadian province would be best to select for moving to Canada as a Francophone?
Quebec is the first choice as Canada's French Province. At the same time, for both English and French speakers, employment and family were the main reasons reported for moving to a different province, regardless of the province or territory.
What is Interprovincial migration?
In Canada, interprovincial migration refers to the movement of individuals from one province or territory to another to relocate, either temporarily or permanently, to the new province or territory.
