As per the reports, Ontario is likely to revise its minimum CRS score rule for OINP- HCP stream. If reports to be believed, the minimum CRS score requirement will now be determined by the Director.
As per the latest reports, Ontario may revise minimum CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score requirement rule applicable to Express Entry aligned Human Capital Priorities (HCP) stream of its Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP). As per the existing minimum CRS rule, applicants require minimum CRS score of 400 or above to apply in Express entry- HCP stream of OINP.
Let's find out more details about the latest Ontario PNP rule changes 2018.
CRS Rule Requirement Revised by OINP
As per the latest news reports, the minimum CRS score requirement will now be determined by the Director.
Moreover, candidates have been suggested to show interest in 'immigrating to Ontario' or select the option of "all provinces and territories" when registering their profile in federal express entry system. It is important to know that individuals willing to apply in OINP- Express Entry- HCP stream, first need to have their profile registered in Express Entry System.
Reduced Significance of CRS Score Rule in OINP Draws this year
The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) didn't really follow the minimum CRS score rule in the OINP draws launched this year. The important thing to note here is that among all three OINP draws this year, two of them were targeting the Express Entry candidates with job offer in the province of Ontario, while one was targeting the candidates with francophone skills, i.e. having the CLB 7 or higher level of proficiency in French language.
OINP dropped the CRS score requirement for these draws below 400 CRS points. In fact, in the August 9, 2018 draw (targeting express entry applicants with job offer in Ontario) required CRS score as low as 350 CRS points.
OINP- Express Entry HCP stream- a key pathway to obtain Canada PR
The Express Entry- Human Capital Priorities Stream of Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) is one of the most popular Canadian PNP streams. It provides the express entry candidates a key pathway to obtain Canada PR. The express entry applicants, who get Notification, apply in OINP, and remain successful, receive 600 additional CRS points in express entry based on the received nomination from Ontario province.
Such massive additional number of CRS points makes an express entry applicant eligible to receive ITA (Invitation to Apply) for Canadian permanent residency from IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) in the subsequent Express Entry draw.

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. They are aware of the complete process as well keep us updated with the changes in the rules(such as biometric became compulsory in the middle of my process and they informed in in time). Easily reachable. Special thanks to all who worked directly with me, namely Jasmeet, Raghuvir, Shweta and Archana.

We are very happy with our decision and glad we decided on visas avenue.
