Ontario’s Human Capital Priorities Stream

The Human Capital Priorities (HCP) stream is an immigration pathway offered by the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) in the province of Ontario, Canada. It is designed to attract highly skilled and experienced foreign workers who can contribute to the province's economic growth and development.

Under the HCP stream, the OINP identifies potential candidates from the federal Express Entry pool who meet the eligibility criteria and possess the skills and experience needed to fill labor market gaps in Ontario. This stream is aligned with the federal government's Express Entry system, which manages the pool of candidates for three federal economic immigration programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the Canadian Experience Class.

To be eligible for the HCP stream, candidates must have a valid profile in the Express Entry system and meet the criteria for one of the three federal programs mentioned above. Additionally, candidates must meet the specified requirements of the HCP stream, which includes factors such as education, work experience, language proficiency, and adaptability.

Candidates who are nominated through the HCP stream receive 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points, which effectively guarantee an invitation to apply for Canada PR in a subsequent Express Entry draw. This nomination significantly enhances the candidate's chances of being selected by the federal government.
