Yet another round of PNP draw in Ontario welcomed 703 candidates with work experience in chosen occupations, on August 26, 2020. These Express Entry candidates had to have a CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score between 466 and 475 to be eligible to receive a nomination from Ontario.
With such provincial nomination in hand, these candidates will get 600 extra points on their CRS scores. This will in effect guarantee that they will get an ITA (Invitation to Apply) for permanent residency in a federal Express Entry draw coming up soon.
The occupations listed for experience by the OINP (Ontario PNP) included:
- NOC 3012 – Registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses
- NOC 1122 – Professional occupations in business management consulting
- NOC 0111 – Financial managers
- NOC 1111 – Financial auditors and accountants
- NOC 3132 – Dietitians and nutritionists
- NOC 0601 – Corporate sales managers
- NOC 3124 – Allied primary health practitioners
- NOC 0124 – Advertising, marketing, and public relations managers
- NOC 1114 – Other financial officers
It is a requisite for candidates to apply under the Human Capital Priorities Stream to receive Ontario’s provincial nomination. They must also have a minimum work experience of a year in any of the above-listed jobs.
The work experience must be gained in Canada or overseas, within the last 5 years from the date of application. The job must have been continuous for at least a year. What’s more, back-to-back jobs in the same occupation with more than one employer is acceptable.
Finally, the occupation that the candidate got qualified for an invitation in Ontario must match with the primary occupation the candidate has mentioned in the Express Entry profile.
The Express Entry system is a major contributor to Canada immigration. It manages applications from candidates who aim at 3 economy class immigration programs namely:
- CEC (Canadian Experience Class)
- FSTP (Federal Skilled Trades Program)
- FSWP (Federal Skilled Worker Program)
Selecting candidates are done on the basis of each candidate’s CRS score. The CRS score is granted based on factors like education, work experience, age, and proficiency in English or French language. The higher the score, the earlier the candidate gets selected.
As is the practice in immigration Canada follows, the federal government allocates a certain number of principal applicants for immigration via OINP. This year that allocation was 7,600 applicants. That included 250 nominations for temporary workers in intermediate skilled jobs or NOC (National Occupation Classification) skill level C.
The provincial nomination is a goldmine for international workers. If you are a qualified professional needed by a certain Canadian province, you have a chance with PNP draws.
