Ontario invited bilingual candidates in the Express Entry system to apply for a provincial nomination on June 18.

A total of 143 Express Entry candidates were issued Notifications of Interest (NOIs) in the new draw. Candidates were invited if they had Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores between 424 and 436, and had the eligibility requirements for Ontario’s Express Entry French-Speaking Skilled Worker (FSSW) stream.

This is the second Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw in two days held by the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP). The draw on June 17 invited candidates who may be eligible for the Express Entry Skilled Trades stream.

Candidates from both of these draws needed to have profiles in the federal Express Entry system, which manages applications for the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the Canadian Experience Class.

Express Entry candidates are given points on the CRS for age, work experience, education, and language ability.

If invited candidates receive the nomination, they will be awarded an additional 600 CRS points toward their overall score. This bonus effectively guarantees that they will be issued an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence in a subsequent federal Express Entry draw.

FSSW candidates need to meet the eligibility requirements of the Canadian Experience Class, or the Federal Skilled Worker Program, and have a Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) of at least seven in French and six in English, among other requirements.

These invited candidates will be contacted by the OINP. They have 45 days to apply online for their provincial nomination.
