July 27, 2017, Ontario PNP sends out invitations welcoming more than 1,000 Express Entry candidates from 18 specific occupations with CRS scores that hangs between 458 and 467.
Approximately 1,031 candidates were invited to apply for Canadian permanent residency following a provincial nomination from the Ontario government. The Comprehensive Ranking System scores the selected Express Entry applicants between 458 and 467.
The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) saw these selected candidates eligible for its Express Entry induced Human Capital Priorities Stream (HCP) giving them hope for a brighter career in one of the most vibrant provinces in Canada.
The primary objective of sponsoring candidates from the Express Entry was to fill the employment gap in the above National Occupational Classification (NOC) codes. By giving them a provincial invitation, Ontario reserves the right to the highly talented workforce in these underrated occupations for the betterment of their economy.
The invited Express Entry candidates should exhibit a minimum of one year of experience in the listed 18 occupations to be invited for a provincial certificate from Ontario. Once nominated under this program or let us say any other PNP-aligned Express Entry pathways, their profile will be first in line to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence.
Canada's Express Entry system
The Express Entry program of Canada is an online immigration application system that allows the intake of candidates through the three main Canadian pathways for migration, namely - the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class. It also works in collaboration with the provincial nominee programs of Canada to invite candidates in the EE pool for a provincial nomination.
An eligible candidate in the Express Entry program is ranked on the basis of a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). The points awarded are based on the candidate's core human factors such as age, work experience, education, language proficiency skills, and other adaptability factors.
Receiving a provincial nomination automatically credits 600 additional points to the already existing CRS score. A PNP guarantees an Express Entry candidate a sure shot opportunity to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in a successive Express Entry-PNP draw.
Throughout the pandemic, the Canadian government has been holding draws targeting PNP candidates in the Express Entry pool. The most recent of which happened last week, where 426 applicants at a CRS score of 734 were offered a slot for Canadian permanent residence.
