The province of Ontario issued 6,850 nominations for Canadian permanent residence in 2018 with almost half going to candidates in the federal Express Entry System as per the new report of Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program. The program allows Ontario to nominate a set number of economic immigration candidates for Canada Permanent Residence.
The latest report published on February 22 states that 6,850 nominations were allotted in 2018 out of which 13, 571 were accompanying spouses and dependents.
Express Entry Nominations Report
Nearly 50 percent of the nominations issued in 2018 went to candidates in the Government of Canada’s Express Entry System which manages the pool of candidates for three of the country’s main federal economic immigration categories.
The Ontario Immigration Nominee Program three immigration streams are aligned with the Express Entry System- Human Capital Priorities, French Speaking Skilled Worker and Skilled Trades.
In 2018, Human Capital Priorities Stream was the most active of the three categories that gave 2,190 nominations. Another 648 nominations were issued through the Skilled Trades and 287 were issued through the French Speaking skilled worker stream.
In order to be considered for any of Ontario Express Entry streams, eligible applicants must submit an Express Entry profile. A high number of tech nominations was given to the candidates with work experience or job-offer in technology-related occupations. The occupations invited include software engineers and designers, computer programmers, interactive media developers, IT systems analysts and technology consultants etc.
The Ontario nomination came from 147 countries in which Candidates born in India received the highest number of invitations than any other country. A total of 2,651 of the 6,850 nominations issued by Ontario went to immigration candidates who were born in India or nearly 39 percent of total nominations. Only 36 percent of nominees had a job offer in Ontario prior to being nominated by the province. The OINP’s three Express Entry aligned streams do not list a job offer among their eligibility requirements.
However, Ontario is yet to receive the 2019 nomination allocation from the federal government. This, however, has not prevented the OINP from issuing invitations. The recent Human Capital Priorities Stream solely invited 1,493 invitations held on January 14.
This is in regard to my journey with Aptechvisa Services. I have experienced here were so far better and I already recommended my multiple friends to them because I can trust their words. I got Aptech visa reference through one of my best friend and today I am in Canada and this all happened just because of Aptech visa.
This is a time to appreciate the performance of Aptech visa. True, Genuine, professional and what not, this is the immigration consultancy to whom we can trust blindly. Due to my age factor I did not score well but more than 400 and this made myself eligible for Ontario and my consultant worked hard in my profile and made it true.
Hope you all are reading my message with Great Spirit. I would rate Aptech 10 out of 10. In between of my application, I have faced a lot of issues in arranging documents but everything went well and there was a continuous support of Aptech which motivated me everything and today I am in Canada, Ontario. Thank you Aptech
Aptech is the best immigration consultant and the staff is of very friendly nature. Since I was there in US, so it was very difficult for me to coordinate with them but they always answered my queries very promptly and meantime, my father was there every time to support me. With the help of Aptech and my father, we got our PR visa for Canada. I am feeling so lucky to be associated with Aptech.
Here we would like to Thank you Aptech visa for all the assistance and help which we have received in our Canada PR visa application throughout the process. They helped me a lot in every manner and it would be an honor if I would say something good about Aptech visa. You guys are really hard working.
Mine was the wonderful journey with Aptech throughout the process. I enjoyed working with them and I would really recommend Aptech to all of you. I have also given a lot of references and in future also will try to refer Aptech to all my known and relatives.
My son has applied for PR visa through Aptech and then he decided to apply for my tourist visa from Aptech only and you can’t believe that I got my visa within 24 hours after applying for the online application. I would really appreciate the work out done by Aptech Global in our applications. Keep working hard guys.
Due to some corrections in my passport, it took more time for me to get the visa but Aptech handled all the things very precisely and smartly. They keep on coordinating with High Commission for my application and did all the conversation on time. Thank you for supporting me.
