OINP’s Human Capital Priorities (HCP) Stream

In 2023, Ontario conducted 14 HCP stream draws, which invited a total of 17,502 candidates. This was the second HCP stream draw conducted in 2024. 

Managed under the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP), the Human Capital Priorities (HCP) stream is established to attract highly skilled and experienced immigrants, who can support and sustain the province’s labour market needs.

Since the OINP’s HCP stream is aligned with the federal Express Entry System, candidates must have an active Express Entry profile. Apart from the OINP requirements, candidates must also meet the eligibility criteria of one of the three Express Entry streams: Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), and Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

Profiles are ranked based on factors including Age, Education Level, Work Experience, Job Offer, and more. Applications under the OINP HCP stream are processed within 10-12 months.
