IRCC has been lately giving more prominence to Francophone immigrants. Recently, IRCC announced that immigrants who speak French or are bilingual will get extra points under Express Entry. French-speaking candidates will get 15 to 25 points and bilingual candidates will get 30 to 50 points. This is expected to increase the admission of French-speaking immigrants in Canada outside Quebec. Canada’s target is 4.4% of such candidates by 2023.
