OINP’s Human Capital Priorities stream

The Human Capital Priorities (HCP) stream is a program designed to attract skilled workers who can contribute to the province's economic development. This immigration stream is part of the larger Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) and focuses on individuals with the right skills and experiences.

The HCP stream is unique because it uses the Express Entry system, a federal immigration management system, to select candidates. Applicants must first qualify for the Express Entry pool and indicate their interest in Ontario. The province then selects candidates from the pool based on factors like education, work experience, language proficiency, and other criteria.

What makes this stream notable is its emphasis on human capital - recognizing that the skills and abilities of individuals contribute significantly to Ontario's growth. Successful candidates receive a provincial nomination, which enhances their chances of obtaining permanent residence in Canada.

This immigration stream is beneficial for both Ontario and skilled workers seeking new opportunities. It helps the province meet its labour market needs while providing qualified individuals with a pathway to settle and contribute to the diverse and dynamic communities of Ontario.
