However, people are unaware of which scores make them qualify under this category. So, to let them know about the eligibility & to share some best examples that will clear their point we are here with this blog.

So, let’s dive in to know more:

Eligibility for French-language Category-Based Draws

Before evaluating various possible Express Entry profile samples, candidates should be aware that the IRCC’s French-language drawings necessitate fulfilling specific eligibility requirements.

The requirements that everyone should fulfill include that candidates must “have French-language test results that show a minimum score of 7 in all four language abilities” (NCLC) Niveaux de compétence linguistique canadiens.

Those four components of language skills in which the immigrants need to score a minimum score of 7 are speaking, writing, listening, and reading.

Now, let’s review the successful profiles that give idea to everyone that they have to avoid making minor mistakes to get successful ITA recipients:

Pascal from Cameroon

Pascal was up speaking French as it was their native language because he is from Cameroon.

As per this profile, the person has applied under the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) and entered the candidate pool at the age of 27. This makes them add the 10 scores to their profile.

  • 27 years old
  • The greatest level of finished education is three years or more of post-secondary education.
  • Second Post-Secondary Qualification: None
  • Research in Canada: Lack of proficiency in English: six in speaking, writing, and reading; seven in listening
  • French Proficiency: 10 across all domains
  • Experience working as a skilled worker full-time outside of Canada for the past ten years: Two years of recent ten-year full-time skilled work experience in Canada: Not one
  • Common-law relationships and marriages: the presence of a permanent resident or Canadian citizen who is at least eighteen years old, without siblings
  • Not a single “close family member” (a Canadian citizen or permanent resident who is at least eighteen years old): Not a Trade Qualification Certificate: No Nomination from the Province: No Canadian Employer Has Made a Skilled Job Offer: No

Result: With this profile, Pascal successfully scored a CRS of 472 & their Express Entry profile was strong enough to reward him with an ITA from IRCC.

Emma from Switzerland

As a native of Switzerland, where French is the co-official language, this 34-year-old lady scored seven on every language competency the NCLC evaluated. Emma applied to the FSWP and used this profile to join the Express Entry candidate pool after confirming that she met the minimal language requirement for the IRCC’s French-language category-based draws.
