Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) issued targeted invitations to candidates who may be eligible for Ontario’s Express Entry Human Capital Priorities (HCP) stream.

The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) enables provinces to fill their labour market shortages by inviting skilled candidates to work and settle in the region permanently. 

Ontario OINP Human Capital Priorities Stream:

Date/time NOIs issued: February 2, 2021 10:25 a.m. EST

Number of NOIs issued: 283

Profiles created in IRCC’s Express Entry system: February 2, 2020 – February 2021

CRS score range: 466-467

Notes: Targeted draw – Priority Occupations

After a candidate receives a notification of interest, they must submit an online application to the OINP.

A candidate must apply within 45 calendar days of receiving the notification of interest. Else, the invitation becomes null and void.

Receiving a Notification of interest does not translate into automatic approval. 

Invited Express Entry candidates have to demonstrate that they meet the criteria of work experience in the NOC code that they have claimed in the Express Entry profile. 

If approved, the candidates are awarded 600 CRS points in their Express Entry profile, thereby effectively guaranteeing a spot in the subsequent Express Entry draw.
