There were 150 more Canada immigration candidates who received invitations for PR nominations through a Nova Scotia PNP draw. This draw that happened on November 7, 2022, paved the way for French-speaking immigration candidates to arrive and settle in a province outside Quebec which is Canada’s only francophone province.

In fact, the Canadian government is keen on increasing the number of francophone immigrants arriving in Canada and settling in regions outside Quebec. To learn more about this trend, visit “Canada Express Entry reforms to bring major changes in early 2023”.

More about the draw

The candidates received invitations through Nova Scotia’s Labor Market Priorities Stream which is linked with Canada Express Entry. Candidates who chose French as their language for a qualifying test had to score 10 points in all linguistic abilities in the CLB system. In fact, this was mandatory for them.

Besides the French score, they also had to score at least CLB 7 in the English language. Other requirements include the following:

  • You must have a Bachelor’s degree or must have attended and completed a program of a duration not less than three years. This must be completed at a college, university, trade/technical school, or any other institute in Nova Scotia.
  • When you submit your application for PR nomination, you must attach copies of qualifying language tests as well as proof of your education with your application.

Candidates who received Nova Scotia’s invitation have to apply for nomination for Canada PR before 11:59 pm on December 7, 2022.
