The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) issued a new nomination draw on July 27, resulting in 1,031 invitations to apply for provincial nominations.
All the invitations were issued to eligible Express Entry candidates with work experience in selected 18 occupations. These candidates are now eligible to apply for provincial nominations under the Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream (HCP). It gives foreign workers an easy opportunity to make Ontario their new home.
Express Entry is an application management system for three federal skilled programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC). Upon registration, the applicants are assessed based on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). It is determined by their age, work experience, education, language ability in English or French.
The highest scoring candidate will be invited to apply in the Express Entry draw. This draw invited candidates with a CRS score ranging between 458 and 467.
Throughout the pandemic, Canada innovated the Express Entry draws for Canada PR by inviting candidates with prior provincial nominations. These candidates will get an additional 600 CRS points if they successfully received provincial nominations, guaranteeing an invitation to apply for permanent residence in Canada.
Healthcare Workers & Managers Among the Invitees for Provincial Nominations
