Ontario invited 703 Express Entry candidates to apply for provincial nomination on August 26


The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) invited Express Entry candidates in new Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw held on August 26.

Total 703 immigration candidates with work experience in targeted occupations received invitations to apply (ITAs) for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence through Ontario’s Express Entry Human Capital Priorities stream in this invitation round.

Candidates needed a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score between 466 and 475 to be invited in this draw.

Invited candidates had at least one year of work experience within the last five years in one of the following nine occupations:

  • Financial managers NOC 0111
  • Advertising, marketing and public relations managers NOC 0124
  • Corporate sales managers NOC 0601
  • 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
  • Allied primary health practitioners NOC 3124
  • Dietitians and nutritionists NOC 3132

Candidates, who wish to be considered for selection by the OINP through its Human Capital Priorities Stream or any of its Express Entry streams, are required to first submit a profile in the Express Entry pool.

The OINP regularly searches Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s (IRCC) Express Entry pool to find eligible candidates who meet the criteria of one of Ontario’s Express Entry immigration streams and then invite them to apply for Canadian permanent residence through regular draws.

Express Entry candidates, who receive a provincial nomination, get additional 600 points towards their CRS score, which effectively increase their chances to get an ITA for Canadian permanent residence in subsequent Express Entry draw.

OINP’s immigration target for this year is set at 7,600 principal applicants, which includes 250 nominations for temporary workers in intermediate skilled occupations or National Occupation Classification (NOC) skill level C.
