On the 26th of November, the Human Capital Priorities Stream draw was held in Ontario, and 267 invitations were sent in the Express Entry Pool for the first time since 9th of August. In the Human Capital Priorities Stream, the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program has the freedom to select and nominate certain candidates for Permanent Residence who are eligible for nomination according to the Federal and Provincial criteria.
Candidates in the Express Entry System who are nominated by a Province will get additional 600 points in the Comprehensive Ranking System Score, thus raising their chances of qualifying for an invitation to apply from the Canadian government. The Express Entry System manages the economic Immigration classes in Canada. They include Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Worker Class, and Federal Skilled Trade Class.
Qualified candidates in the 26th October draw had offers of employment in Ontario, although that is not a criterion for selection. They were picked from a score range of 350 to 448. Portals for the submission of profile had been opened from 1st of January to 22nd of November, this year.
Encouraging financial growth in Ontario
According to the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program, the targeted search was conducted to develop the labor market in Ontario and set financial growth policies that would be practical and beneficial, and also satisfy the employers’ needs.
So far this year, the Human Capital Priorities Stream has issued a total of 3,719 invitations, the Skilled Trade Stream has issued 1626 invitations while the French Speaking Skilled Worker stream has issued 1,519 invitations. These three powerful streams have covered for 95% of all the invitations sent from Ontario under the Provincial Nominee Program for Canada throughout this year.
Applications that were found to be qualified invitations and consequently offered invitations to apply for the provincial nomination will be examined in 2019 under the OINPs Nomination allocation. In the last four draws by the OINP, specific invitations were sent under the Human Capital Priorities Stream.
This fourth draw was targeting candidates of Express Entry who are equally proficient in French. The other three was directed to Express Entry candidates who had employment offers in Ontario.
In the first and fourth draws, the minimum score was 351, while in the second and third draws, the minimum score had dropped by one, making it 350.
The Province of Ontario has also given invitations under its French Speaking Skilled Worker class and its Express Entry Skilled Trade Stream.
In the Skilled Trade draw, which occurred on 26th November, 181 invitations were issued. In the French Speaking Skilled Trade draw, which took place on the 22nd of November, 43 invitations were issued.
