Ontario Has Reached Its Limit for Nominations for 2018 With the Latest Draws

Ontario Has Reached Its Limit for Nominations for 2018 With the Latest Draws

Ontario has finally reached its yearly limit of 6,600 applicants for 2018 through its Provincial Nomination Program. This is a sum total of all the streams that applicants can apply through for the OINP. However, there is one exception for the OINP streams which is the Master’s Graduate Stream. This stream is currently not being considered but all others are still being considered.

Despite the fact that OINP has reached its prescribed limit for this year, it has declared it will continue to entertain applications. Ontario’s PNP program is already the biggest in all of Canada since it entertains 6,600 successful applications on a yearly basis. If Ontario entertains any more applications this year, it will be exceeding its PNP allocation limit.

With the end of the year approaching fast, there is a lot of speculation on the PNP allocation limit OINP will announce for 2019. The willingness of OINP authorities to entertain new applications even after passing the limit indicates that the allocation limit may be increased next year.

This speculation is also supported by the fact that the 2018 limit for PNPs was increased by 10% from the 2017 limit. That is why Ontario invited 6,600 applicants this year from 2017’s 6,000. Also, the target for admissions through the PNP programs for all provinces has been increased from 55,000 to 61,000 for 2019. This means that the CIC will be making 6,000 more PNP allocations than it originally planned. Naturally, since Ontario is the most popular province for Canada immigration, it is very likely that its PNP allocation limit will also increase.

 

Human Capital Priorities Was a Major Player This Year

The Human Capital Priorities or HCP streams are the most popular means by which applicants receive their OINP nomination. In fact, this year the three main streams in this program accounted for 6,411 nomination applications in total.

It is important to note that each of these streams is processed through the Express Entry program. So, in order to be considered for immigration through this stream, the applicants need to have an Express Entry profile.

Overall, the Human Capital Priorities stream resulted in 3,534 invitations to apply or ITAs issued to applicants this year. This number is 50 percent of the total number of ITAs issued by the OINP this year and this shows how important these streams are.

Another important factor here is the targeted draws made by OINP this year. Ontario has a separate stream for French-speaking applicants and out of the three targeted draws made this year, one focussed exclusively on such applicants.

The applicants who were selected through the French-speaking target draws needed to have a CLB 7 score in their French language speaking ability. These three draws were part of eight draws that the OINP authorities have made so far.

 

New Changes in OINP Which Will Impact Your Application

A major piece of news for OINP applicants is that the province will not be sticking to the 400 CRS requirement anymore. As per the latest news from their office, the director of OINP will be issuing the cut-off limit prior to each draw. This means that the cut-off could get lowered and more applicants can get selected.

Another major announcement which has emerged from the OINP office is that the date for responding to the nomination has been extended. Now, nominated applicants will have 45 days to respond to their nomination formally. Earlier, this was only 14 days. So, the space for gathering all documents and completing all formalities has been increased by a lot and applicants can apply more easily.
