On June 23, 2021, Ontario issued invitations to 583 Express Entry candidates to lodge applications for a provincial nomination. OINP invited candidates who had profiles in the Express Entry system and had CRS scores in the range of 464 to 467.
The candidates invited by OINP were possibly eligible for the Express Entry HCP. This PNP gives workers of foreign nationality the opportunity to make a career in Ontario. This is also the opportunity they have to settle in Ontario, the most populous province of Canada.
The candidates invited by OINP in this draw required work experience in one of the 10 occupations mentioned below:
- NOC 0122 – Banking, credit, and other investment managers
- NOC 0601 – Corporate sales managers
- NOC 1121 – Human resources professionals
- NOC 4163 – Business development officers and marketing researchers and consultants
- NOC 0124 – Advertising, marketing, and public relations managers
- NOC 1111 – Financial auditors and accountants
- NOC 1122 – Professional occupations in business management consulting
- NOC 0125 – Other business services managers
- NOC 1112 – Financial and investment analysts
- NOC 3012 – Registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses
Express Entry candidates who were invited required to possess a year’s experience in working in one of the above-said occupations to be eligible for a provincial nomination from Ontario. If they are granted the nomination under OINP, or any other PNP linked with the Express Entry, they will have the chance to come to the front of the line to get an ITA for Canada PR.
Provincial nominations and ITAs
Express Entry candidates who get a nomination from a PNP will be awarded an additional 600 CRS points. This potentially increases the chance for the candidates to receive an ITA in an upcoming Express Entry draw.
About the Express Entry system
Express Entry is an application management system. It works to manage immigration applications for 3 Federal High-Skilled programs for Canada immigration namely FSTP, CEC, and FSWP. Express Entry candidates are possibly eligible for one or more of these immigration programs.
Candidates who create their profile in the Express Entry system are given CRS scores for grading. This is done on the basis of factors like work experience, age, language skills in English/French, and education. Candidates who score the highest are invited to apply for Canada PR in an Express Entry draw.
