OINP- Human Capital Priorities (HCP) - EE stream Invitations
The express entry aligned stream of Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) is largely popular stream of this Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) of Canadian province Ontario. Earlier, it was not disclosing the selection round results, however, in 2018, Ontario has changed its policy and now it is revealing results for all its invitations rounds. The current invitation round is the 2nd round this week, this month and this year as well.
Key details of the 2nd Invitation Round this weekHere are the key details of January 25 invitation round:
Although, in this round, the OINP didn’t invite the candidates having CRS score below 433 points, however, as per the selection criteria of Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP)- HCP stream, it will continue to invite the express entry candidates with CRS score 400 or above and who meet the eligibility criteria of the stream. Ontario has also announced that it will announce a crucial OINP update in the week starting on January 29, 2018, hence, it will be interesting to see what new change or addition the provincial government announces this time around in OINP.
What is the benefit of applying OINP- EE stream? How it works
Well, to be eligible to apply in OINP- HCP Express entry stream, you need to have an account in federal express entry system. If an applicant placed in express entry pool, has the CRS score 400 and he also meet the eligibility parameters of OINP- EE stream, he gets notification of interest (NOI) from Ontario to apply in the OINP-HCP Express entry stream. If an applicant applies and gets selected for provincial nomination, he/she becomes eligible to receive 600 additional CRS points in express entry.
The 600 CRS points seals the ITA (Invitation to Apply) for the applicant from IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) in the upcoming draw of Express Entry system. Now the normal express entry selection process takes place, i.e. on receipt of ITA (invitation to apply) from IRCC, an applicant needs to submit complete Canada PR visa application along with essential documents within 90 days.
