Canada invites 300 applicants in the latest French speaking express entry draw

Canada invites 300 applicants in the latest French speaking express entry draw On October 25, 2023, the Canadian immigration authorities announced Ministerial Instruction #270, a new development under the Express Entry system. This instruction aimed to invite 300 individuals who have a good grasp of the French language to apply for permanent residence in Canada. To be eligible, candidates needed to have a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 486 or higher, and they had to rank at 300 or above. In cases where multiple candidates shared the same lowest score, the tie-breaking rule came into play. This rule was based on the submission date and time of their Express Entry profiles, with the cut-off set at September 30, 2023, at 04:22:17 AM UTC.

Here are the key details of this draw:

Category: French language proficiency
Total number of invitations sent: 300
Date of Draw: October 25, 2023, at 15:48:39 UTC
Minimum CRS Score: 486
Tie-breaking rule: September 30, 2023, at 04:22:17 UTC

To be eligible for this French-speaking category, applicants needed to meet two main criteria:

1. They must have French-language test results showing a minimum score of 7 in all four language skills, following the Niveaux de compétence linguistique canadiens.
2. They must fulfill all the prerequisites mentioned in the instructions applicable for that round.

Now, let’s take a look at some of the documents required for the Express Entry program:

The Express Entry process involves two distinct steps. Initially, applicants need to submit their profile, which requires the following documents:

1. Language Test Results: Candidates must provide the results of their language proficiency test, demonstrating their skills in either English or French.
2. Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) Report: As part of the profile submission, applicants are required to provide an assessment report that evaluates their educational qualifications in terms of their equivalence in the Canadian education system.
3. Passport or Travel Document: A valid passport or travel document is necessary for identification during the initial profile submission.

Once applicants successfully submit their profile and receive an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence, the second step involves a more comprehensive application. This includes the submission of additional documents:

1. Reference Letters: Applicants are expected to provide reference letters from previous employers or relevant authorities to validate their work experience and skills.
2. Additional Identity Documents: In addition to the passport or travel document, applicants may be asked to submit further identity documents to support their application.
3. Police Clearance Certificates: Candidates must supply police clearance certificates from all the countries where they have resided for a specified duration. These certificates demonstrate their good conduct and lack of criminal records.
4. Medical Examination Results: As part of the application, candidates are required to undergo a medical examination and provide the results to demonstrate their overall health and fitness for permanent residence in Canada.
