In the latest Express Entry Human Capital Priorities(HCP) Stream draw held on June 3, Ontario invited 699 candidates to apply for a provincial nomination. Candidates with work experience in the following nine target occupations received Notifications of Interest(NoIs) in the draw:
|Financial managers||NOC 0111|
|Other administrative services managers||NOC 0114|
|Advertising, marketing and public relations managers||NOC0124|
|Financial auditors and accountants||NOC 1111|
|Other financial officers||NOC 1114|
|Professional occupations in business management consulting||NOC 1122|
|Registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses||NOC 3012|
|Other primary health practitioners||NOC 3124|
|Dieticians and nutritionists||NOC 3132|
Of the total number of NoIs issued, 167 NoIs were issued to candidates with at least one year of work experience in Canada. The Comprehensive Ranking System(CRS) score of these candidates ranged between 358 and 439.
The remaining 532 invitations were issued to candidates with international work experience. The CRS score of these candidates ranged between 471 and 500.
The first step for a candidate to be invited by Ontario under the Human Capital Priorities Stream is to create an Express Entry profile. Candidates cannot apply directly for provincial nomination under this stream. Instead, they would receive a Notification of Interest if selected by the OINP on the basis of their Express Entry profile. They must also have the minimum CRS score determined by the OINP.
The other requirements include:
- Required level of official language proficiency
- Intend to reside in Ontario
- Legal status in Canada, if applying from inside the country
- Sufficient settlement funds
The candidates who have received the NoIs, if successfully apply for and obtain a provincial nomination from Ontario, will have 600 additional points added to their CRS score. It guarantees them an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence in Canada in the subsequent Express Entry draw.
