In the latest Ontario Human Capital Priorities (HCP) draw held on May 31, a total of 1072 Express Entry candidates were invited to apply for provincial nomination. The draw specifically targeted candidates with work experience in 10 selected occupations and the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores of invited candidates ranged between 439 and 469.
Human Capital Priorities Stream
Through the Human Capital Priorities Stream, Ontario searches for candidates with the skills and experience to meet the labour market demands of the province in the federal Express Entry pool. The selected candidates are invited to apply for a provincial nomination from Ontario. The candidates who thus receive the provincial nomination will obtain 600 additional CRS score points which guarantee them an invitation to apply for permanent residency in Canada in the subsequent Express Entry draw.
A total of 2565 invitations have been issued through Human Capital Priorities Stream so far this year and the draw held on May 31 is the second draw in 2019.
