Qualifying for Canada PR with Ontario Provincial Nomination

Receiving an invitation to apply for permanent residency remains under the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal government. A provincial nomination will, however, fast-track the total time taken to receive an invitation to apply. 

Ontario Immigration Nominee Program (OINP) issues provincial nominations to eligible skilled workers under its famous Human Capital Priorities stream. The province also invites candidates already registered in the federal pool under its Tech draw.

Those with provincial nominations like the one from Express Entry Human Capital Priorities (HCP) stream or Ontario Tech Draw or any other stream will get preferential treatment to obtain permanent residence. The inclusion of additional 600 CRS points makes the entire process of applying for Canada PR through Express Entry even simpler. 

Since the start of 2021, Canada has been holding program-specific Express Entry draws where it invites candidates either with provincial nominations or prior work experience in Canada. Canada has already exceeded its initial target of issuing 108,500 new ITAs for Canada PR in 2021 and expects to invite more candidates further.
