OR CALL +1 (647) 494-7977

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP), French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream is a dedicated immigration channel crafted to draw skilled workers proficient in both English and French to Ontario, Canada. This initiative mirrors Ontario’s dedication to nurturing linguistic diversity and cultural enrichment by extending invitations to individuals capable of contributing their skills and talents while actively encouraging the use of both official languages.

Focused on individuals possessing bilingual skills, this stream acknowledges the significance of linguistic diversity in enriching the economic and social tapestry of the province. Ontario aims to address its labor market needs by carefully choosing candidates who satisfy particular educational and work experience criteria, showcasing a notable proficiency in both languages.

Individuals meeting the eligibility criteria for the OINP French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream have the potential to leverage the Express Entry system. A successful provincial nomination considerably increases their likelihood of receiving an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence at the federal level. This strategic initiative serves as a crucial element in the integration of skilled and bilingual professionals into the Ontario workforce, thereby making significant contributions to both economic growth and cultural diversity within the province.

Depending on which program the applicant decides to be assessed for, the requirements will vary accordingly. You can take a look at other OINP programs, and take a look at our professional fees
