The French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream is for French-speaking Express Entry candidates who qualify for either the Federal Skilled Worker Class or the Canadian Experience Class and who have sufficient English language abilities. They must also meet other criteria unique to the province of Ontario.
Another 2587 NoIs were sent through Human Capital Priorities Stream, which is also linked to the Ontario Express Entry system. According to the OINP, it will continue to issue NoIs to eligible candidates from the Express Entry pool “on a regular basis”.
