Origin and Purpose:

 

Francophone Mobility Program, also known as Mobilité Francophone [R205(a)] (exemption code C16), was launched on the 1st of June 2016 with a purpose of promoting the use of French language outside Quebec and promote francophone immigration in francophone minority communities.

 

This stream falls under the International Mobility Program, category ‘Canadian interest-Significant benefit’ which allows Canadian employers to hire foreign nationals without the need to obtain a Labour Market Impact Assessment. As a result, the employer is not required to demonstrate efforts to recruit or train Canadian citizens or permanent residents; in addition, the LMIA application fee is not required under Mobilité Francophone.

 

How do you qualify:

 

·        Available for all and no age limit,

 

·        The applicant will have to live and work outside the province of Quebec. The job offer should be for work outside the province of Quebec.

 

·        The applicant’s habitual language should be French and used on a daily basis. The job offer does not need to require French

 

Assessment of an applicant's language ability is at the Visa Officer's discretion.

 If it is not clear in the initial application that the applicant has the requisite proficiency in French, the Test d’Evaluation Du Francais (TEF) may be required. In this case, a result of the Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) 7 or higher is the threshold that must be met by the applicant.

·        The job offers made to the foreign worker must be for a skilled position as level 0, A or B of National Occupational Classifications

 

·        The employment contract should mention all the essential elements such as Job duties, hours of work, terms of resignation or termination, holiday and sick leave entitlements, workplace safety insurance coverage among others.

 

Process to obtain a work permit:

 

Employer will have to apply online through the Employer Portal. Pay the Employer Compliance Fee. Note the Offer of Employment Number which will be shared with the Applicant who will then be able to apply for their work permit.

 

Bonus for the applicant’s family:

 

A nice bonus of Francophone Mobility Program is that you can bring your family along! If your offer of employment exceeds six months, your spouse or common-law partner may apply for a Work Permit without a confirmed job offer. Moreover, your school-age children may apply for a Study Permit without a letter of admission.

 

Promoting the use of French outside Quebec strengthens and supports the social and cultural fabric of Canadian society while respecting the federal, bilingual and multicultural character of Canada.

 

Ontario invited candidates under French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream:

 

The French-speaking skilled worker stream which is linked with the express entry-aligned does not mandate a job offer in Ontario or minimum CRS score. The province has issued 549 invitations under this stream so far in this year. 

 

To help you navigate the entire process, our team has the resources and skills to assist. To know more about your eligibility under different categories, please contact us by email at support@spscanada.com or call at 905.362.9393. Our team will be in touch with you shortly.
