Express Entry candidates who have a minimum of 1 year’s work experience in 9 specified jobs were invited in a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw held by Ontario on June 3, 2020.
Candidates were selected in this OINP (Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program) draw who may be eligible for the Express Entry HCP (Human Capital Priorities Stream).
The jobs specified for eligibility were:
- Financial managers (NOC 0111)
- Advertising, marketing, and public relations managers (0124)
- Accountants and Financial auditors (NOC 1111)
- Professional jobs in business management consulting (NOC 1122)
- Registered psychiatric nurses and Registered nurses (NOC 3012)
- Nutritionists and Dieticians (NOC 3132)
- Other administrative services managers (0114)
- Other financial officers (NOC 1114)
- Other primary health practitioners (NOC 3124)
A Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score between 358 and 439 was needed for the candidates.
The invited candidates had their profiles in the federal Express Entry system. The Express Entry system manages applications for 3 federal immigration programs namely:
- Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
- Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
- Federal Skilled Workers Program (FSWP)
532 invitations were sent to international candidates who required a CRS score between 471 and 500.
167 invitations were given to candidates with work experience in Canada.
The CRS scores assigned to these candidates’ profiles are assigned to the profiles based on factors like:
- Work experience
- Language skills in English and French
A nomination from the Ontario province will add 600 points to the CRS score. It will in effect guarantee that a candidate will get an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian Permanent Residence (PR) in a coming federal Express Entry draw.
In 2019 more than half of Ontario’s provincial nominees turned out to be Express Entry candidates. They came to 7,391 candidates.
Ontario has a maximum allocation to invite 7,600 principal applicants. In this, 250 nominations are for temporary workers. They may be from the NOC (National Occupation Classification) skill level C or intermediate skilled jobs.
