New Updates To The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program

April 10, 2017- Starting this week, the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) will resume issuing Notifications of Interest to applicants who qualify for Ontario’s Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream (April 10-14, 2017).

It is recommended that prospective applicants create a new profile in the Express Entry system to make it easier for the province of Ontario to identify the applicant profile during its search of the Express Entry pool. Please note that if you create a new Express Entry profile, you must delete your old profile. Prospective applicants who meet the Human Capital Priorities Stream criteria, have a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 400, and are identified in the Express Entry pool will be sent a Notifications of Interest.

This round of Notifications of Interest will be targeting candidates in high-demand skilled trades in the construction sector who meet the criteria of the Human Capital Priorities Express Entry stream. The list of occupations can be found here. Historically, people working in these occupations had lower educational credentials and language scores so it is uncertain how many will actually qualify for nomination.  

To find out more about various provincial programs and to assess your qualifications, please contact us.
