The Human Capital Priorities Stream is aligned with Canada’s Federal Express Entry system, which offers the fastest route to permanent resident status in Canada. To be eligible, candidates need to have an active profile created in the Express Entry pool for either the Federal Skilled Worker program or Canadian Experience Class. With an Express Entry profile submitted, All candidates with Express Entry profile are automatically considered for the program, so you don’t need to apply directly to Ontario.
The May 31st draw targeted skilled workers with work experience suited to the demands of the province. Those who met the criteria were invited to submit an online application for immigration. The occupations targeted for Friday’s draw were:
|National Occupation Classification (NOC) code||Work Experience|
|0114||Other administrative services managers|
|0601||Corporate sales managers|
|1122||Professional occupations in business management consulting|
|0124||Advertising, marketing and public relations managers|
|0621||Retail and wholesale trade managers|
|3012||Registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses|
|1114||Other financial officers|
|0651||Managers in customer and personal services, n.e.c.|
The 1,072 candidates who received NOI’s from Ontario will receive 600 points towards their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score under the Express Entry system. These extra points put an applicant in a very competitive position in the pool, bearing in mind that recent Express Entry draws have had a CRS cut-off scores hovering around 450 points! With a nomination from Ontario in hand and 600 extra CRS points, Express Entry applicants will be in an excellent position to receive an invitation to apply for permanent residence in Canada.
Ontario is Canada’s most popular destination for newcomers to Canada. Hosting major cities such as Toronto and Ottawa, the province receives half of all new immigrants to the country. Ontario’s Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) is understandably an attractive option for anyone interested in living and working in Canada.
Fortunately, the province of Ontario is steadily increasing its yearly immigration quota, and is introducing adaptive programs to fit the demands of the province such as a stream specifically for international high-skilled tech workers. Friday’s draw is another significant move towards meeting its 2019 quota of 6,900 new immigrants, the highest nomination allocation ever seen by the province.
With Ontario set to welcome more newcomers than ever before, and Canada planning to invite more than one million new immigrants in the next three years, now is the best time to begin an application for Canadian permanent residence.
