It's a LMIA-exempt temporary work permit program, which will only allow to gain Canadian work experience to apply for permanent residence.

Yes and no. One of the possibilities for express entry additional points is a job offer from Canadian employer. One of the major obstacle for that is LMIA. So this new rule can help those with good enough French to get the job offer a little bit easier.

Furthermore, I can see rather lot of activities organised from Canadian Embassy in France - there are plenty different web-meetings ongoing there (most of them in French).
I am guessing that soon there will be update on the whole Express Entry as well as was hinted beginning of summer.

You can only get 600 points for a permanent, non-seasonal, and full-time job offer with an LMIA, it's pretty clear here what counts as a valid job offer for PR:

If Mobilite francophone is LMIA-exempt and temporary work, then it cannot be counted as a valid job offer, a.k.a. 600 points for a permanent residence application.

Ok,
I have rechecked it and unfortunately the LMIA is still there. However, since on some pages some updates were still missing so I might be the case that more rules will change soon.
