The Ontario Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) welcomed 486 Express Entry applicants to apply for provincial nomination

The new Ontario PNP draw includes 18 targeted occupations, including nurses, managers, and human resource professionals.

On October 6, Ontario conducted a new Human Capital Priorities Stream (HCP) draw after a two-month break.

If the 486 invited applicants fulfil all of the program's qualifying requirements, they may be eligible for a provincial nomination to support their permanent residency application. If foreign employees receive a nomination via the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), which is linked to the Express Entry system, they will receive an automatic 600 points toward their overall score.

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) targeted Express Entry candidates with scores between 463 to 467 on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS).

The OINP encouraged applicants to participate in this draw if they have work experience in one of the 18 occupations listed below:

NOC 0114 – Other administrative services managers

NOC 0122 – Banking, credit and other investment managers

NOC 0124 – Advertising, marketing and public relations managers

NOC 0125 – Other business services managers

NOC 0211 – Engineering managers

NOC 0311 – Managers in health care

NOC 0601 – Corporate sales managers

NOC 0631 – Restaurant and food service managers

NOC 0711 – Construction managers

NOC 0731 – Managers in transportation

NOC 0911 – Manufacturing managers

NOC 1121 – Human resources professionals

NOC 1122 – Professional occupations in business management consulting

NOC 2161 – Mathematicians, statisticians and actuaries

NOC 3012 – Registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses

NOC 3211 – Medical laboratory technologists

NOC 3231 – Opticians

NOC 3233 – Licensed practical nurses

In order to get the provincial nomination, invited Express Entry candidates must have at least one year of work experience in one of these occupations. They will be moved to the front of the queue for an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence if they are nominated under this or any other Express Entry-linked PNP.

So far this year, Ontario has invited 4,851 immigrants through this procedure.

Ontario welcomed 6,716 Express Entry applicants to apply for a provincial nomination through the HCP stream in 2020, making it the year's most popular Express Entry-linked programme.
