According to the expansion, employers in Canada can now offer jobs to eligible candidates who show at least a moderate knowledge of French language. This will be applicable to all jobs under the NOC codes, except for primary agriculture jobs. 

Who is eligible?

Before this expansion, only those who were highly skilled when it came to speaking French and were temporary international workers, could apply for this program. 

However, now, the doors of opportunity is open for workers even with moderate level of French speaking skills. And after securing a job in Canada, these immigrants could even potentially apply for permanent residency in the country!
