Federal government’s express entry registered candidates were invited by Ontario Immigrants Nominee Program’s (OINP) famous Human Capital Priorities Stream via a draw held on May 31.
OINP invited a total 1,072 express entry candidate who has applied for permanent residency by getting the provincial nomination. Candidates that were targeted must have the required work experience and Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score between 439 and 469 points and other major criteria.
OINP’s Human Capital Stream allows the province of Ontario to search in the express pool for the candidates who are able to meet the stream’s federal and provincial eligibility criteria and issue the invites to apply for a provincial nomination to get the Canada PR visa.
Getting a provincial nomination for an express entry candidate gives a major boost to their CRS score, with a nomination awarding the candidate with 600 CRS points. These many points effectively guarantee the candidate to get an Invitation to Apply (ITA) to apply for Canada PR visa to the Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC). The very first step to being considered by OINP’s Human Capital Priorities stream or any other express entry linked stream is to be entering the Express pool.
OINP held their second draw of the year through Human Capital Priorities Stream, with this draw brings the total for Notification of Interest (NOI) issued to express entry candidates to, 2,565 NOIs.
In some occasions, OINP conducts targeted draws via Human Capital Priorities Stream for candidates with credentials that are not among its usual eligibility requirements.
The May 31st draw was the same case, which sees the NOIs issues to Express Entry candidates with work experience in 10 occupations. These occupations are as follows:
This draw marks the first time that the OINP targeted this specific list of occupations. In the past, OINP targeted only IT occupations. This flexibility allows the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program to adapt its Human Capital Priorities Stream to meet its labor market and economic development priorities and to be more responsive to the needs of the employer of the Ontario’s province.
