Qualifying for Canada Permanent Residency with Provincial Nominee Program
Issuing invitations for permanent residency is the exclusive domain of the federal government. A provincial nomination may, however, fast-track the total time taken to receive an invitation to apply for Canada Permanent Residency.
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 Canada permanent residency.
The inclusion of additional 600 CRS points makes the entire process of applying for Canada PR through Canada Express Entry even simpler.
Canada had re-invented itself to achieve the ambitious annual immigration target even during the pandemic. Throughout 2020 and 2021, IRCC held program-specific Express Entry draws to invite domestic candidates for Canada permanent residency, either with provincial nominations or prior work experience in Canada.
