Ontario Distributes Invitations To Express Entry Candidates
The Canadian province of Ontario hosted an immigration draw on February 2, 2021.
Ontario has been committed to the idea of bringing more immigrants into the province to help in the recovery of the slow economy. On February 2, 283 candidates registered in the Express Entry Pool received invitations to submit their applications for a provincial nomination.
Requirements of the draw
The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program or OINP gives provincial nominations to candidates who have the necessary skills to fulfill certain labor gaps in the province. The minimum required scored ranged between 466 and 467. The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program targeted Express Entry candidates with work experience in any of the following professions:
- Corporate sales managers (NOC 0601);
- Registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses (NOC 3012);
- Financial auditors and accountants (NOC 1111);
- Human resources professionals (NOC 1121);
- Banking, credit or other investment managers (NOC 0122);
- Managers in advertising, marketing and public relations (NOC 0124);
- Other business services managers (NOC 0125);
- Financial and investment analysts (NOC 1112);
- Professional occupations in business management consulting (NOC 1122);
- Business development officers and marketing researchers and consultants (NOC 4163).
The onus is on the candidates to prove that they have the correct work experience if they want a chance to get the nomination. With 600 extra CRS points in their pockets, successfully nominated candidates will stand a greater chance of being selected for permanent residence in the next Express Entry draw.
The people who received invitations on February 2 might be eligible under the Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream or HCP. With the help of this Provincial Nominee Program, international workers with the necessary professional experience can settle down in Ontario on a permanent basis.
