IRCC awards more points to Francophone Express Entry applicants
The government of Canada has decided to award more points to Francophone Express Entry applicants. Of course, this change will give a boost to those who know the French language well.
The importance of points for Express Entry applicants
If you are immigrating under the Express Entry system, you fill out an online form first. Consequently, the online system will assign you a score. Of course, they name the scoring system CRS. Each applicant remains in the pool of Express Entry for up to one year. However, IRCC picks a few hundred applicants from the pool every month. Of course, the selection focuses on the highest CRS points in the system. Therefore, the higher your score, the better your chances for an ITA! If you need more information, read this article:
What has changed for the Francophone Express Entry applicants
The following table shows the changes for those who know the French language. Of course, you must take an official language test to prove your abilities.
|French Language Knowledge||English Language Knowledge||CRS Score in the past||CRS Score Now|
|NCLC 7 or higher on all four French language skills||CLB 4 or lower in English (or didn’t take an English test)||15||25|
|NCLC 7 or higher on all four French language skills||CLB 5 or higher on all four English skills||30||50|
You will receive these extra points on top of the score you receive for knowing Canada’s official languages. However, if your French knowledge for any of the abilities is less than NCLC 7, you won’t receive the extra points. Nonetheless, visit the following articles for more information:
