Introduction of Improved Provincial Pathway Immigration

The express entry linked provincial nominee program has devoted significant time towards innovating and issuing more than 3,000 Invitations to Apply (ITA) for a provincial nomination to obtain Canada Permanent Residence. The months of July, August, and September were spent in innovating a new pathway in favor of this.

The news which flashed in third quarter of 2018 year involved major changes which were largest invitations this year through Ontario’s Human Capital Priorities Stream, Saskatchewan shifted to an Expression of Interest system for its Express Entry sub-category and the formation of Nova Scotia’s Labour Market Priorities Stream.

Provincial Nominee program is formulated to enable the aspirants to participate in Canadian provinces and territories in an urge to apply for nomination and get permanent residence if the candidates are invited to apply.

Every Canadian Province and Territories PNP from now has at least one Express Entry-linked nomination stream. This stream is liable to manage and the candidate’s profile by means of three federal economic immigration - the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class and the Canadian Experience Class.

Express Entry candidates who receive an provincial nomination will be granted extra 600 points towards their score Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score which will help them to fast track them for the invitation to apply for the permanent residence.

Ontario Drops 400 CRS minimum

Through Ontario’s Human Capital Priorities Stream, around 947 Notifications of Interest (NOI) issued to the Express Entry candidates was considered as the largest invitation round of the third quarter. The candidates who were granted NOI in the latest draw were having their CRS score ranging from 350 to 439.

The Human Capital Priorities Stream under the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) helps to hunt for the eligible candidates who accomplish the federal and provincial criteria from the Express Entry pool.

The draw held on August 9 was the second draw of this year which pinpointed the Express Entry candidates holding a job offer in Ontario. Though job offer is not required under Ontario’s eligibility criteria, but still job holding candidates were given preference. The two subsequent draws were surprisingly drifted away from the eligibility criteria established by choosing the applicants candidates with less than 400 CRS score.

The perpetual dropping in the CRS score to 400 depends majorly on number of eligible candidates in the Express Entry pool, Ontario’s labour market needs and the province’s economic immigration priorities.

Also, Ontario French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream which invites French speaking Express Entry applicants arranged regular weekly draws and issued 419 NOIs.

Saskatchewan Switches to EOI

The third quarter of 2018 also witnessed adoption of an Expression of Interest system by the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) for its Express Entry sub-category in July. The motive was to terminate the first come first service and to target the candidates who are likely to succeed the Saskatchewan labour market.

To become eligible for the Saskatchewan’s EOI system, Candidates must submit Expression of Interest by making EOI profile and ranked according to the answer given related to work experience, education and proficiency in English or French etc.

Then the candidate who achieved 60 points on Saskatchewan’s assessment grid, are invited for the provincial nomination. About 691 invitations were issued in the recent two draws.

Nova Scotia Embarks New Express Entry Stream

With the creation of its Labour Market Priorities Stream by the Nova Scotia in the August has invited candidates to apply for the provincial nomination. There is no need of CRS score.

The first round of draw held on august 3 noticed an issue of 314 invitations to the candidates with 2 years of experience minimum as childhood educators and assistants.
