Eligibility for Ontario’s FSSW

The Federal Express Entry system for Canada is linked with the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) stream classified as French-Speaking Skilled Worker (FSSW). Candidates who are selected for the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program’s (OINP) human capital stream are invited to submit an official application to apply for permanent residence (PR) in Canada.

Candidates must have an active profile in one of the two Express Entry programs listed below:

  • Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
  • Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
  • a score of at least 7 in French on the Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB).
  • sufficient funds to cover the expenses.


The program is open to those who have been invited. When applicants submit their Express Entry profiles, they are automatically included in the program’s pool of candidates. The candidates will receive a Notification of Interest (NOI) to express Entry accounts by Ontario, and also will invite them to apply.
