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.
