Ottawa prioritizes French-speaking economic immigrants, often overlooking stronger candidates

The Canadian Government places a high emphasis on French-speaking economic immigrants, which sometimes results in the bypass of applicants with higher rankings. With the recent overhaul of the Express Entry system, Ottawa has extended invitations for permanent residency to approximately 19,700 individuals, primarily based on their proficiency in French. In addition, around 36,150 invitations were sent out to candidates chosen according to their point scores rather than specific qualities. This approach may result in the selection of candidates with lower scores. Some critics express concern that this policy might not effectively foster economic growth and could limit the capacity to attract top talent.
