Applying Permanent Visa in Canada? Find out How Proficiency in French can Help Your Cause
Are you planning to immigrate to Canada on a permanent residence (PR) Visa, but not happy with the point score you have received in the Express Entry system?
Well, you are not alone, in fact, there are thousands of people registered in the online Express Entry immigration system of Canada waiting for the invitation since long. The IRCC only invites those express entry applicants to apply PR visa, who have higher point score.
The CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) Score requirement from IRCC these days is over 450 CRS points. Hence, if your CRS point score is less than this you, you will have to keep waiting till the cut-off decreases in any particular express entry draw.
How French Language proficiency can help you?
English and French are the two official languages spoken in Canada. Usually, the applicant who apply for Canadian PR visa is proficient in the English language (with decent IELTS band score), as Canada demands proficiency in either English or French language. Canadian government or IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) wants applicants to have minimum CLB 7 level of primary language proficiency, i.e. IELTS band 6 in all four language abilities.
However, if you have a decent enough French language proficiency (as a secondary language), you can earn extra or bonus points based on the same. Find out how.
Earn Bonus points for proficiency in French as Secondary language
As per the June 2017 immigration rule changes, by the Canadian government, an applicant can earn extra points based on his proficiency in French as a secondary language. Here is the whole description for the same given by IRCC:
- You can earn up to 30 additional points for strong French language skills (even if French is your second language).
- If you score NCLC 7 or higher on all four French language skills, you can get,
- 15 additional points if you scored CLB 4 or lower in English (or if you didn’t take an English test)
- 30 additional points if you scored CLB 5 or higher on all four English skills
Now, if your CRS point score at now is 430 points, upon getting these 30 additional points for French proficiency, it will jump to 460 points, making you eligible to get Canada PR invitation from IRCC (considering the current cut off trend in EE draws).
Well, apart from this there are other pathways as well through which you can raise your point score and subsequently, obtain the invitation to apply for Canada PR visa from the Canadian government. All you need to do is get in touch with a trusted and registered Canada immigration consultant to know the pathways to enhance your point score and consequently, win the invitation to apply for Canadian PR visa from IRCC.
