Ontario catered to its need for skilled bilingual foreign workers through its recent draw involving Express Entry candidates. On April 30, 2020, invitations were issued to bilingual Express Entry candidates under Ontario’s Express Entry FSSW (French-Speaking Skilled Worker) stream.
The largest FSSW draw this year so far, the draw had 307 Notifications of Interest (NOI) involved. The earlier draw of this kind took place on January 9, 2020, with 242 bilingual candidates invited to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence in Canada.
The candidates who are invited have 45 days to apply for their provincial nomination. The application should be submitted online.
Those invited in the April 30 draw have profiles in the federal Express Entry system. if a candidate receives a provincial nomination from Ontario, that will add 600 points to their CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score.
The added points would effectively guarantee that the candidate will get an ITA (Invitation to Apply) for Canadian permanent residence. This will apply for a future federal Express Entry draw.
For the FSSW, candidates have to meet the eligibility stipulations of the Federal Skilled Worker Program or the Canadian Experience Class. They should also have a Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) score of at least 6 in English and 7 in French.
This is the second draw by Ontario in 2 days that is Express Entry-linked. The April 29 draw aimed at candidates in 14 skills trades occupations.
