Ontario PNP invites 703 Express Entry candidates

Ontario invited 703 Express Entry candidates with work experience in targeted occupations on August 26.

Express Entry candidates needed a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score between 466 and 475 to be invited in the latest invitation round. If they successfully receive the nomination, they will automatically be awarded an additional 600 CRS points, which will effectively guarantee them an Invitation to Apply in a subsequent Express Entry draw. This goes for any successful candidates of a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) invited candidates to apply for a provincial nomination if they had work experience in one of the following occupations:

  • Financial managers NOC 0111
  • Advertising, marketing and public relations managers NOC 0124
  • Corporate sales managers NOC 0601
  • Financial auditors and accountants NOC 1111
  • Other financial officers NOC 1114
  • Professional occupations in business management consulting NOC 1122
  • Registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses NOC 3012
  • Allied primary health practitioners NOC 3124
  • Dietitians and nutritionists NOC 3132

In order to receive the provincial nomination from Ontario, candidates need to apply under the Human Capital Priorities Stream, and have at least one year of experience in one of the above occupations. The work experience must have been obtained within the last five years from the date of the application. It could have been gained in Canada or overseas but it must have been “continuous”, meaning no break in employment for over a one year period. Having back-to-back jobs in the same occupation but with different employers is acceptable.

The candidate’s occupation that qualified them for an invitation from Ontario must be the same primary occupation that the candidate identified in their Express Entry profile.

Express Entry is an application management system for three federal immigration programs: Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class.

Express Entry candidates are given a CRS score, which ranks them based on factors such as age, work experience, education, and language proficiency in English or French.

The highest-scoring candidates are then invited in regular Express Entry draws.

The OINP searches the Express Entry pool to find candidates who may meet the criteria of their immigration streams.

This year, the federal government has allocated 7,600 principal applicants for immigration through the OINP. This allocation includes 250 nominations for temporary workers in intermediate skilled occupations or National Occupation Classification (NOC) skill level C.

In 2019 over half of Ontario’s 7,391 PNP recipients were Express Entry candidates.
