Ontario has offered fresh Canada PR via PN invites for Express Entry candidates with CRS scores as low as 350. This was through the fresh targeted draw held on 9 August through Human Capital Priorities Stream of the province. A total of 947 invitations were offered to candidates in the Express Entry pool in this draw.
The Comprehensive Ranking System score range for the draw was 350 to 439 said Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program. The candidates who received the NOIs – Notifications of Interest had submitted their profiles during a specified period. This was between 1 January 2018 and 9 August 2018, as quoted by the CIC News.
Candidates in Express Entry pool with a job offer in Ontario were targeted by this draw. Those who have received the NOIs from Ontario now have 45 calendar days to apply for Provincial Nomination.
Candidates who are successful in receiving Provincial Nomination for Canada PR from Ontario will receive 600 extra points. This is towards their CRS scores. It effectively guarantees an Invitation to Apply in the subsequent draw held in the Express Entry pool.
The HCP stream permits OINP to identify candidates in Express Entry pool who cater to the specified criteria of the stream. Usually, the criterions mandate candidates to possess CRS score of 400 or plus. However, targeted draws like this have waived the requirement in favor of proficiency in French or a job offer.
A job offer is not included among the normal requirements for HCP stream. Out of the 8 draws held in 2018 in this stream, 6 did not have requirement of a job offer. It was not specified by Ontario whether the job offers pertained to a specific field or occupation.
