Latest Ontario PNP Invitation rounds continue to issue invitations to Express Entry registered candidates. The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) is one of the major Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) in Canada and largely popular among the Canada PR aspirants. The provincial government invited yet another lot of candidates under its OINP-Skilled Trades and OINP- French-Speaking Skilled Worker streams.

Latest OINP Invitation Rounds

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) has been busy in the first half of the year in issuing invitations consistently under various EE streams. This time around too it issued a total of 95 invitations through its two successive draws held on May 2 and May 3, 2018 for its Skilled Trades and French-Speaking Skilled Workers streams. This in fact was 5th time in this year, OINP issued invitations under these two streams. Let's take a look at both these draw statistics separately:

  • As many as 59 Express Entry candidates received invitation from Ontario PNP under the Skilled Trades Stream. The candidates invited had submitted their profiles in Federal express entry system between January 1, 2018, and May 2, 2018. Total number of NOI (Notifications of Interest) issued under this stream are now 604 in 2018.
  • Under French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream, a total of 36 Express Entry candidates received invites. These were the candidates who registered their profile in federal express entry system between January 1, 2018, and May 3, 2018. Now total NOIs issue under French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream are 420 this year.

Best thing about both the above stream is that there is no CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score compulsion to apply in any of these two streams. This is the reason that most of the Canada immigration and PR aspirants apply in these key streams. The applicants who apply and get selected in EE streams get the 600 additional points in express entry streams. Such massive additional points make certain that the applicants obtain invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residency from IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada).
