Ontario PNP Draw: 502 Express Entry applicants invited

Nursing, banking, and food service managers were among the 18 occupations targeted in Ontario's most recent PNP draw. Ontario held its second draw in two days on January 12, inviting 502 Express Entry candidates to apply for a provincial candidacy. The invited candidates had Express Entry profiles with CRS scores ranging from 464 to 467.

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) welcomed candidates who may qualify for the Express Entry Human Capital Priorities (HCP) Stream in the next draw. This Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) allows foreign workers to start their careers in Ontario and migrate to the country's most populated province.

The OINP invited candidates who have work experience in one of the 18 vocations listed below with respective NOC (National Occupational Classification) codes:

Other administrative services managers - NOC 0114

Banking, credit, and other investment managers - NOC 0122

Advertising, marketing, and public relations managers - NOC 0124

Other business services managers - NOC 0125

Engineering managers - NOC 0211

Managers in health care - NOC 0311

Corporate sales managers - NOC 0601

Restaurant and foodservice managers - NOC 0631

Construction managers - NOC 0711

Managers in transportation - NOC 0731

Manufacturing managers - NOC 0911

Human resources professionals - NOC 1121

Registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses - NOC 3012

Medical laboratory technologists - NOC 3211

Opticians - NOC 3231

Licensed practical nurses - NOC 3233

Invited Express Entry candidates must have at least one year of work experience in one of these occupations to get a provincial nomination. In addition, they will be given priority for an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence if they are nominated under this or any other Express Entry-linked PNP.

Express Entry is a management system for three Federal High Skilled Immigration Programs: the FSWP (Federal Skilled Workers Program), the FSTP (Federal Skilled Trades Program), and the CEC (Canadian Experience Class). Express Entry applicants may be eligible for one or more of these programs.

Once approved into the Express Entry pool, IRCC distributes points based on human capital indicators such as age, job experience, education, language ability in English or French, and other variables. After that, the top scorers are asked to apply for an Express Entry lottery.

Express Entry applicants who are nominated by a PNP automatically receive a 600 CRS point increase to their total score. This practically ensures them an ITA in the next Express Entry draw. During the pandemic, (IRCC) held PNP-only draws, requiring candidates to have a PNP to be invited.
