The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) issued 443 invitations to Express Entry applicants. Applicants were required to have scores between 469 and 477 in the Comprehensive Ranking System. They also had to have work experience in one of the following nine occupations:
Applicants were invited by Ontario because they may be eligible for the Ontario Express Entry: Human Capital Priorities stream. Once an applicant is invited and they receive a provincial nomination, they will receive an additional 600 CRS points and be guaranteed to receive an invitation to apply for permanent residence in Canada in a subsequent Express Entry draw.
Those invited to the November 12 draw now have 45 calendar days to apply for the provincial nomination.
Basic on OINP’s Human Capital Priorities Stream
This enhanced Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) allows the OINP to nominate candidates from the Express Entry pool for permanent immigration.
To be eligible for the Human Capital Priorities Stream, applicants must meet the eligibility criteria for one of Canada’s highly skilled federal programs, which may be the Skilled Worker Program, the Skilled Trades category, and Canadian experience.
Applicants do not need a job offer in Canada, but they must meet certain work experience eligibility criteria. That is, they need at least one year of full-time paid work experience or the part-time equivalent gained within the past five years. This can be an international work experience or Canadian work experience.
Eligible applicants are ranked according to the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) based on human capital factors such as age, work experience, education, and language skills in English or French. Obtaining a provincial nomination is 600 automatic CRS points.
Top-rated applicants receive Invitations to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence through bi-weekly draws. Once applicants have received the ITA from the federal government, they can then apply for permanent residence.
