For the third time since January 22, Ontario's Express Entry-linked Human Capital Priorities Stream has issued invitations to apply for provincial nomination.

The Human Capital Priorities Stream allows the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) to search the Express Entry pool for candidates who have at least 400 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points and who meet other eligibility criteria.

Express Entry candidates who receive a Notification of Interest (NOI) can apply for a provincial nomination by Ontario. If successful, they get an additional 600 points toward their CRS score.

The OINP announced the new round of invitations February 8. A total of 89 Notifications of Interest were issued to Express Entry candidates with  scores ranging from 433 to 444.

The OINP also announced that it "will be issuing NOIs on a regular basis to applicants, who at [a] minimum, have a CRS of 400 and meet all eligibility criteria."

The OINP said the invitations were issued to candidates who submitted their profiles to the Express Entry pool between January 1 and January 25, 2018.

The invitations followed a search of the Express Entry pool conducted January 25 at 2:15 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

This latest invitation round follows two previous rounds on January 22 and January 26.
