Ontario PNP Draw Invites 699 Immigration Candidates

Ontario invited 699 immigration candidates with work experience in one of nine (9) occupations to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence on June 3.

Those candidates with CRS scores as low as 358 were obtained invitations to apply for a provincial nomination from Ontario immigration authorities.

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) draw invited candidates who may be eligible for the Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream (HCP).

Express Entry candidates with work experience in the following nine occupations listed below were issued Notifications of Interest (NOIs) in the latest invitation round:

  • Financial managers (NOC 0111)
  • Other administrative services manager (0114)
  • Advertising, marketing and public relation managers (0124)
  • Financial auditor and accountants (NOC 1111)
  • Other financial officers (NOC 1114)
  • Professional occupation in business management consulting (NOC 1122)
  • Registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurse (NOC 3012)
  • Other primary health practitioners (NOC 3124)
  • Dietician and nutritionists (NOC 3132)

The 699 immigration candidates who had at least one year of work experience in Canada were required to have a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score between 358 and 439 in order to receive an invitation from Ontario province. A total of 167 notification of interest were given to candidates with work experience in Canada.

Most of the invitations were awarded to candidates who had done work experience abroad. A total of 532 of the invited candidates have the needed work experience internationally. These candidates required CRS scores between 471 and 500.

In order to be invited, candidates first needed to have valid profiles in the federal Express Entry system.

Express Entry manages the applications for three federal major immigration programs: Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSTP), and Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

Candidates are allotted points based on their human capital factors such as age, educational qualification, work experience, and language ability.

A nomination from a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) effectively assures that a candidate will receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian immigration in a subsequent federal Express Entry draw.

Ontario is allowed to choose 7,600 principal applicants this year. This includes 250 nominations for temporary foreign workers in intermediate skilled fields or National Occupation Classification (NOC) skill level C.

The last year 2019, over 50 per cents of Ontario’s 7,391 provincial nominees were Express Entry candidates.
