Ontario invited 703 Express Entry candidates with work experience in targeted occupations on August 26.
Express Entry applicants needed a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score between 466 and 475 to be invited to the final round of invitation. If they receive the application successfully, they will automatically receive an additional 600 CRS points, which will effectively guarantee them an invitation to apply for a subsequent Express Entry draw. This applies to all successful applicants in a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).
The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) invited applicants to apply for a provincial appointment if they had work experience in one of the following occupations:
To receive the Ontario Provincial nomination, applicants must apply under the Human Capital Priorities Stream and have at least one year of experience in one of the above professions. Work experience must have been acquired within the last five years from the date of application. It could have been acquired in Canada or abroad, but it had to be “continuous”, that is, without interruption of employment for more than a year. Having consecutive jobs in the same occupation but with different employers is acceptable.
The occupation of the candidate who qualified them for an Ontario invitation must be the same primary occupation that the candidate indicated in their Express Entry profile.
Express Entry applicants receive a CRS score, which ranks them based on factors such as age, work experience, education, and proficiency in English or French. The best-rated candidates are then invited to the regular Express Entry draws.
The OINP searches the Express Entry pool to find candidates who can meet the criteria for their immigration streams.
This year, the federal government assigned 7,600 principal applicants to immigration under the OINP. This allowance includes 250 applications for temporary workers in intermediate occupations or at skill level C of the National Occupational Classification (NOC).
In 2019, over half of Ontario’s 7,391 PNP recipients were Express Entry applicants.
