FRANCOPHONE PROGRAM

The Government of Canada has introduced a francophone mobility program under international mobility program to promote francophone immigration in Canada. Foreign nationals who are qualified and offered skilled jobs under NOC (0, A, or B) may qualify under this program. Francophones can apply for a work permit without requiring an LMIA by demonstrating their french language skills.
