apply for PR in Canada

French-speaking TR were invited to apply for PR in Canada

Today, July 12th, Minister Mendicino and the President of FCFA visited the City of Bathurst to invite French-speaking temporary residents (TR) to apply for PR in Canada. These residents are essential to the vitality of Francophone communities.

Francophone applicants can enroll in the recent immigration option introduced by the government of Canada. People know this option as TR to PR Pathway.

French-speaking TR are especially crucial for the future of Acadian and Francophone minority communities, IRCC said. They “will help to address the shortage of French-language teachers in Canada”, IRCC added.

In order to achieve Canada’s objectives for Francophone immigration, the streams for French-speaking have no limit to the number of applications that can be received. Therefore, Francophones can enroll in this program without fear of the cap.

Apply for PR in Canada: Francophone applicants

IRCC will accept applications from French-speaking or bilingual candidates (outside of Quebec) until November 5, 2021. Here is the list of the streams:

  • Temporary workers in health care
  • Essential workers – cap 30,000
  • International students – cap 40,000 (cap already reached)

Visit the following page for more information on these options:

According to our CEO and RCIC, AL Parsai, you must reach NCLC (CLB) 4 or higher under every language skill for the first two immigration options. However, you must have at least NCLC (CBL) 5 or higher under every language skill for the last option. Moreover, the only acceptable French tests are TEF Canada or TCF Canada.
