Ontario invited bilingual Express Entry applicants to apply for the provincial nomination on June 18.
A total of 143 Express Entry candidates received Notifications of Interest (NOI) in the new draw. Applicants were invited if they had Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores between 424 and 436 points, and if they had the eligibility criteria for the Ontario’s Express Entry French-Speaking Skilled Worker (FSSW) stream.
This is the second two-day Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw organized by the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP). The June 17 draw invited candidates who may be eligible for the Express Entry Skilled Trades stream.
Applicants for these two draws were required to have profiles in the federal government’s express entry system, which handles applications for the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTPl) and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC).
Applicants for Express Entry receive points on the CRS for age, work experience, education, and language skills.
If the invited candidates receive the nomination, they will receive 600 additional CRS points for their overall score. This bonus effectively guarantees that they will receive an invitation to apply for permanent residence (ITA) during a subsequent federal Express Entry draw.
Applicants to the FSSW must meet the eligibility requirements of the Canadian Experience Class or the Federal Skilled Worker Program and have a Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) of at least seven in French and six in English, among others.
These invited candidates will be contacted by OINP. They have 45 days to submit their provincial application online.
