For the purpose of applying to the MPNP, a Francophone is someone who has French language proficiency that is equal to or greater than their English language proficiency. Your language proficiency must be supported by results from an MPNP-approved language test.

Note: Minimum Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) Levels

The CLB levels listed in the in-demand occupations list are the minimum levels across all Skilled Worker streams; however, some streams/pathways have higher eligibility requirements.
