How you can benefit as a French Speaker
When establishing your profile, it’s essential to demonstrate proficiency in one of Canada’s official languages: French or English.
Opt for your stronger language as your primary official language to maximize your likelihood of earning more points. For robust French language skills, you can attain an additional 50 points, even if French is your second language.
If you achieve a Niveaux de Compétence Linguistique Canadiens (NCLC) level 7 or higher in all four French language skills, you can receive:
• 25 extra points if you scored a Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB) level 4 or lower in English (or if you didn’t take an English test).
• 50 additional points if you scored CLB 5 or higher in all four English language skills.
Category-based rounds occur annually, inviting eligible candidates from the Express Entry pool for specific categories to meet identified economic goals. These rounds complement general and program-specific rounds by inviting high-ranking candidates capable of contributing to these specific objectives. French language proficiency is designated as one of the selected categories for 2023.
