This was the first category-based Express Entry draw of 2024. 

This was also the seventh Express Entry draw conducted for candidates with French Language Proficiency since the launch of category-based selection draws on May 31, 2023. 

IRCC quoted, “By prioritizing the invitation of French-speaking newcomers, Canada aims to support economic growth through Francophone immigration outside Quebec while recognizing how it enriches and strengthens these communities.”

IRCC has noted that they will undertake the following actions in pursuit of this goal:

  • Develop a new Immigration Policy to work toward restoring and increasing the demographic weight of Francophone minority communities across Canada.
  • Boost promotion and selection of French-speaking PRs.
  • Support the settlement and integration of French-speaking immigrants in Francophone minority communities.
  • Set ambitious targets to increase Francophone PR admissions on an ongoing basis.

According to the latest Canada Immigration Levels Plan 2024-2026, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is looking to welcome 31,500 French-speaking permanent residents (PRs) in 2025 and 36,000 newcomers under the same category in 2026.
