French-speaking applicants have received Express Entry invitations from Ontario. The city issued over 1,065 invitations through the French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream (FSSWS). Ontario issued another 44 invitations to Express Entry applicants through the Ontario’s FSSWS.
On almost a weekly basis, the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) has been giving out invitations through the FSSWS. According to the CIC News, Ontario issued a total of 1,065 invitations in 2018 in the latest draw. In the previous draw, Ontario issued 15 invitations.
Those who wish to apply under FSSW stream must be eligible for either the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) or the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP). They must also meet the province’s criteria.
The FSSWS is for applicants who are French-speaking and wish to live and work in Ontario. Started in 2015, the FSSWS targeted the French-speaking Express Entry candidates. These candidates will have to be qualified for either the FSWP or CEC. They must have strong English language skills with a score of CLB 6 or higher.
The OINP said that applicants submitted their profiles between 1st January and 13th September 2018. Those who submitted their application during this period received the Notifications of Interest (NOI) in the latest draw. The OINP also said that an applicant is not qualified for the FSSWS only by receiving an NOI. All those who received the NOI must meet the stream’s eligibility criteria so that they meet its provincial and federal criteria. If you are interested in the FSSWS, the first step would be to find out if you are eligible for the Express Entry pool.
