The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) issued 486 invitations to eligible immigration candidates in the Express Entry pool on February 13. Nurses, managers, and accountants are just some of the skilled occupations Ontario invited to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence.
Candidates did not need to have a job offer to be invited, however, they did need to have work experience in the following occupations:
Financial managers, NOC 0111
Other administrative services managers, NOC 0114
Advertising, marketing and public relations managers, NOC 0124
Corporate sales managers, NOC 0601
Retail and wholesale trade managers, NOC 0621
Managers in customer and personal services, n.e.c., NOC 0651
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
Those who qualified for Ontario’s Express Entry Human Capital Priorities (HCP) Stream needed a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score between 467 and 471. The Human Capital Priorities Stream is open to skilled workers, living in Canada or abroad, who want to permanently live and work in Ontario.
The OINP engaged with stakeholders across the province through a survey and face-to-face consultations. This helped them choose priority occupations for the draw.
If candidates who were invited in this draw receive a provincial nomination from Ontario, they will be awarded an additional 600 points toward their overall CRS score, which would effectively guarantee them an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence in a subsequent Express Entry draw.
