Ontario invites 986 PNP candidates
Ontario invited 986 Express Entry candidates with scores less than 300 to apply for provincial enrollment on June 1.
The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) invites candidates who may be eligible to enroll through the Ontario Express Entry Skilled Trades Stream.
The scores of the candidates in the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) ranged between 300 and 379. Invited candidates had submitted their profiles between June 1, 2020 and June 1, 2021.
If invited candidates receive nominations, they will be given an effective guarantee of receiving an Invitation to Apply for Permanent Residence (ITA) in a subsequent Express Entry Draw. This is because all Express Entry candidates who receive enrollment from an Advanced Provincial Enrollment Program (PNP) have 600 CRS points added to their scores.
OINP will contact all the invited candidates. Invited candidates now have 45 calendar days to apply for provincial nominations.
More about the Ontario Express Entry Skilled Trades Stream
Ontario’s Express Entry-Linked Skilled Trades stream provides a route to permanent residency for candidates in the Federal Skilled Worker Program and Canadian Experience Classes. OINP invites eligible candidates to apply for provincial enrollment.
Eligible candidates are currently residing in Ontario, and have at least one year of full-time work experience, or the equivalent in part-time work. They must have completed this work experience in the province in a skilled trade listed in Minor Group 633 or Major Group 72, 73, or 82 under Canada’s National Occupational Classification (NOC).
No job offer is required to apply under the Skilled Trades stream, but candidates must meet all mandatory federal and provincial requirements.
The first step to be considered for a provincial nomination is to submit a profile to the Express Entry system.
