Ontario PNP invites 703 Express Entry candidates
♦ Invited candidates have the potential to qualify for a provincial nomination for permanent residence through Ontario’s Express Entry Human Capital Priorities stream.
Ontario encouraged 703 Express Entry candidates with work experience in targeted occupations on August 26.
Express Entry candidates needed a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) rating between 466 and 475 to be encouraged in the latest invitation around. If they successfully receive the nomination, they will automatically be given an extra 600 CRS points, which will effectively guarantee them an Invitation to Apply in a subsequent Express Entrance draw. This goes for almost any successful candidates of a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).
The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) encouraged applicants to apply for a provincial nomination when they had work experience in one of the following occupations:
- Financial managers NOC 0111
- Promotion, 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 main health professionals NOC 3124
- Dietitians and nutritionists NOC 3132
In order to receive the provincial nomination from Ontario, candidates need to apply under the Human Capital Priorities Stream, and have a minumum of one year of expertise in one of the above occupations. The work experience must have been accessed over the previous five years from the date of this application. It could have been gained in Canada or abroad but it must have been”constant”, meaning no break in employment for more than a one year interval. Having back-to-back work in precisely the same job but with unique companies is acceptable.
This past year, the federal government has allocated 7,600 principal applicants for immigration throughout the OINP. This allocation includes 250 nominations for temporary employees in intermediate skilled jobs or National Occupation Classification (NOC) skill level C.
In 2019 over half of Ontario’s 7,391 PNP receivers were Express Entry candidates.
