Ontario invites Express Entry candidates with work experience in 11 occupations

In the recent Ontario’s Human Capital Priorities Stream draw held on May 31, the express entry candidates were the prime focus at this time the province has invited more than 1,000 EE candidates with work experience in 11 occupations. A total of 1,072 invitations were issued to express entry candidates with the specific work experience and CRS score between the ranges of 439-469 in the latest draw to apply for a provincial nomination for Canada permanent residency process.

Ontario is considered as a home for new residents. Like other Canadian provinces, Ontario has its own provincial nominee program to nominate skilled workers on the basis of labor market requirements and individuals who intend to live in Canada permanently for their growth.

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP)’s Human Capital Priorities Stream permits the province to seek for the Express Entry pool for candidates meeting eligibility criteria of Federal and Province and invite the selected candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for Canada permanent residence. Receiving an invitation to apply for provincial nomination is in a favor of immigration applicant as it helps the express entry candidates to get an additional 600 points to their overall score increasing their chances to get an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence.

To get selected by the OINP through its Human Capital Priorities Stream or its other Express Entry Streams, the first step would be to enter the Express Entry pool. It is the second draw so far in the year 2019 under the Human Capital Priorities Stream and around 2,565 Notifications of Interest, or NOIs, to Express Entry candidates has been issued.

The eleven targeted occupations were:

  1. NOC 0114: Other administrative services managers
  2. NOC 0601: Corporate Sales Managers
  3. NOC 1122: Professional occupations in business management consulting
  4. NOC 0124: Advertising, marketing, and public relations managers
  5. NOC 0621: Retail and wholesale trade managers
  6. NOC 1111: Financial auditors and accountants
  7. NOC 3012: Registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses
  8. NOC 0111: Financial managers
  9. NOC 1114: Other financial officers
  10. NOC 0651: Managers in customer and personal services, n.e.c

It is for the first time that the OINP has considered this specific list of occupations. While in the past IT occupations were on target.   This flexibility allows the OINP to adapt the Human Capital Priorities Stream to its labor market and economic development priorities, and to be more responsive to employer needs.

As per David Cohen, senior partner with the Campbell, Cohn Canadian Immigration Law Firm in Montreal, this draw has turned up as the positive aspect of the Human Capital Priorities Stream to fulfill the labor needs.   Candidates having work experience in these occupations and intend to live in Ontario should know that their demand in the province is high apparently.
