3,200 profiles with CRS 420 and above receive ITAs under French Proficiency Draw

express entry draw 302

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced the results of its fourth Express Entry draw for the month. This category-based selection focused on attracting candidates with strong French language skills. A total of 3,200 profiles meeting the minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 420 received Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for permanent residence in Canada.

This draw marks a significant development in Canada’s immigration strategy. The CRS cut-off score of 420 is the highest yet for a French-language proficiency draw conducted in 2024. This suggests increasing competition for these targeted draws, with a corresponding decrease in the number of ITAs issued compared to the previous draw in February (with 7,000 ITAs).

The Canadian government has long recognized the importance of bilingualism as a cornerstone of its national identity. By incentivizing French-speaking immigrants, Canada aims to address regional labor shortages and make sure that French remains a vibrant part of its cultural mosaic.

This draw is part of a broader trend in Canadian immigration policy to attract diverse talent pools. Future draws may continue to focus on specific skill sets, industries, or language abilities, reflecting Canada’s dynamic and evolving immigration strategy.

For candidates and immigration professionals, staying informed about such targeted draws will be crucial. Those interested in the Express Entry system are advised to improve their language skills, gather relevant work experience, and stay up-to-date with IRCC announcements to maximize their chances of receiving an ITA.

The issuance of 3,200 ITAs in the French Proficiency Draw marks a significant milestone in Canada’s efforts to attract Francophone talent. As Canada continues to refine its immigration policies to meet economic and demographic goals, such targeted draws are likely to become more commonplace, offering unique opportunities for diverse groups of skilled professionals worldwide.
