Nomination through OINP-HCP stream is key pathway to obtain Canada PR
The Human Capital Priorities (HCP) Stream of Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) is key pathway for express entry candidates to obtain the provincial nomination and add additional 600 points to their total CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) Score.

Generally, Ontario demand CRS score of 400 points or above to select the applicants under OINP- express entry-HCP stream, however, on some occasions, it do invite the applicants with low CRS score.
Last year also, OINP invited the targeted applicants (i.e. having experience in IT occupations) with CRS score below 400 mark. Till date, Ontario has issued total of 1,808 Notifications of Interests (NOIs) in the year 2018. The above mentioned two draws were the first OINP draws this year, wherein only targeted candidates were selected, i.e. candidates with employment offer and French language proficiency. However, the OINP has confirmed that it will continue to invite the applicants as per the normal criteria, i.e. applicants with CRS Score 400 and above with profile in Express Entry pool.

Great experience with the team. They were flawless in their process and more importantly they would nag us if we were relaxed in the process.
