3 Different Selection Process used in Express Entry PNP’s For Candidates 2018

Selection Process for Express Entry PNP

Provinces in Canada are using different approaches to select candidates from express pool who have applied for provincial nomination program. Each province has their own process for nominating the capable immigrants and we have seen three in past weeks how they work:

  • Nova Scotia
  • Prince Edward Island
  • Ontario

Candidates who are nominated for the provincial nomination program are awarded 600 points in their express profile and increase their rank in CRS thus improving their chances for sure to get a permanent residency in Canada.

Different approaches used by provinces in nominating the candidates in past week were:

  • First-come, First serve
  • Expression of Interest
  • Passive

Provinces PNPs has one stream in express entry system, which manages pool of candidates for Canada’s three Federal High Skilled economic immigration programs- Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trade Classes and Canadian Experience Class.

Last year, more than 17,000 of the 109,497 applicants who have applied for Canadian permanent residency via express entry, had a provincial nomination. There was an increment of more than 4,000 in comparison to 2016 provincial nomination candidates.

PNPs that were in action past week all of them had one common thing they all do not require a job offer or a minimum CRS score in order to be eligible.

Nova Scotia: First come, First serve

On November 17, Nova Scotia reopened Category B of its Demand: Express Entry Stream allowing candidates to apply for permanent residency in Canada.

Category B is the last remaining category that is using the principle of first come, first serve. This means when they have started accepting the application they only stop accepting the application when they met the required quota, which usually occurs quickly.

For candidates to apply under this category B, they aren’t required to have a job offer from the eligible employer from the Nova Scotia province but they must have work experience in one of the province’s 11 opportunity occupations, among other criteria.

Prince Edward: Expression Of Interest

Prince Edward Island invited candidates on November 15 through its Expression Of Interest (EOI) for the provincial nomination.

Expression Of Interest system is used by the candidates in their express profile to select the province they want to settle in. In this case, they have Prince Edward Island to settle and work in.

Once they have chosen the province, their profile is sorted in POI’s pool of eligible candidates. Candidate’s profiles are ranked based on various deciding factors like education, work experience and language proficiency in either English or French.

Draws are made on monthly basis by the PEI. Since switching to EOI, PEI has conducted 10 draws. Other province that conducts their nomination via EOI system is British Columbia, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

Ontario: Passive

Another PNP that invited candidates in past week was Ontario Provincial Nomination Program (OINP). Invitations were sent to those candidates who were for following Ontario’s passive Express Entry Stream:

  • Human Capital Priorities Stream(3,534 nominations)
  • French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream(1,476 nominations)
  • Skill Trades Stream(1,445 nominations)

All the above streams are called passive because express entry candidates cannot actively apply or declare their interest in being considered for a nomination through them.

Future Pathway for Immigrants

Looking at the expected numbers for permanent residency in 2019, combining both express entry programs and provincial nomination program is around 142,400 new permanent residents. This accounts for 43 percent of Canada’s target of 330,800 total new admissions next year.
