    Ontario Provincial draw invited 115 French speakers to the Express Entry pool

    Ontario province conducted the fourth PNP draw of the year. The provincial nomination was to help the French-speaking Express Entry candidates. In the latest draw, there were 115 bilingual Express Entry candidates selected.

    The shortlisted candidates can immigrate to Canada through Ontario’s Express Entry French-Speaking Skilled Worker (FSSW) stream. The Candidates should have a profile in the Express Entry System with a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score between 461 and 467.


    The FSSW of Ontario is an enhanced Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) stream, which means the stream is aligned with the Express Entry system. Applicants with the Notification Of Interest (NOI) received in this draw need to have an Express Entry profile created after July 21, 2020. The selected applicants can be contacted by the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP); they will have 45 days to apply online for their provincial nomination. It is the fourth FSSW draw of the year, and with this latest draw, the total number of NOIs issued through this stream has reached 489


    What are the eligibility requirements for FSSW?

    The applicant‘s selection process will start with the profile in the Express Entry system. This program is designed for people meeting the eligibility requirements for the Canadian Experience Class or the Federal Skilled Worker Program. The required Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) should be at least 7 in French and 6 in English. The OINP will also want to see applicants with the funds to cover settlement costs in Ontario.


    What is the benefit of nomination?

    Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) are created to help the Canadian provinces invite immigration candidates according to regional labor markets.


    Express Entry candidates are given an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence in a subsequent draw at the federal level. With a provincial nomination, the applicants are awarded 600 CRS points. This guarantees the selection of the applicant in the next the federal Express Entry system draws.
