Eligibility Criteria for French-Language Proficiency Category

In contrast to other recently introduced Express Entry selection categories, French-Language Proficiency stands out as the sole category where work experience is not the primary attribute for receiving an Invitation to Apply (ITA).

To qualify under the French-Language Proficiency category, you must:

  1. Attain French-language test results indicating a minimum score of 7 in all four language abilities according to the Niveaux De Compétence Linguistique Canadiens (Canadian Language Proficiency Levels).
  2. Fulfill all requirements outlined in the instructions for that particular invitation round.


As per the latest Canada Immigration Levels Plan 2024-2026, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) aims to welcome 31,500 French-speaking permanent residents (PRs) in 2025 and 36,000 newcomers within the same category in 2026.
