Default French is mandatory ?

Hi, Recently, I have been assessed for Canadian immigration from a consultant.

Though I have 10 Yrs of experience and my wife is also Engineering graduate, they say
that French Language is required to qualify.

Is it true ?

Can somebody clarify on this ?

Regards Vasanth

No, French is not mandatory but you probably didn't get enough points without it
to qualify.

While French is not mandatory to pass the consultant was telling you that under the
present criteria and pass mark the only way you could increase your pass mark would
be to learn French. This can add up to 8 points to your score. The problem is of
course us that learning a language take some time and you should not indicate that
you speak french on an application in anticipation of it being accepted at face value
without some proof or testing. I expect there are some consultants who will counsel
persons to indicate fluency in French just to boost their scores.

Wait until next year as the pass mark may be lowered.

No, French is not mandatory. Probably you did not score enough. BTW, do you know
what's your score? You can evaluate yourself from the CIC website and spending some
time over it. Good luck.

IWhile this debate is going on, it brings up a question of my own: I took a beginning
French course while I was at university. If I had to guess my own proficiency, I'd
figure I'd score "with difficulty" at the red/write, listen/speak boxes. Thus, I
believe I could earn some points. What proof does CIC require, just transcripts, or
will I need to tak a test, or what to get those points?
