Ontario issued 947 invitations to Express Entry candidates under its Human Capital Priorities Stream on August 9, 2018 with Comprehensive Ranking System Score as low as 350.
The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program says the CRS score ranged from 350 to 439 in the latest draw and Notification of Interests (NOIs) were issued to the applicants whose profile was in the express entry pool between January 1, 2018 and August 9, 2018.
The applicants who are invited in this draw are required to have a job offer letter from the Ontario employer.
The Human Capital Priorities Stream allows the Ontario Immigrant to search the applicants in the express entry pool who meet the stream’s specific criteria. Normally these criteria require express entry applicants to have a CRS score of 400 and above. However, the targeted draws like this and another held on March 26 have decreased the CRS point score and additionally asking for a job offer letter in Ontario or proficiency in French.
Though, job offer is not mandatory requirement under Human Capital Priorities Stream. Of the eight draws held through the stream this year, only two draws had job offer requirement.
Earlier, the province of Ontario has issued targeted NOIs to candidates with work experience in select information communication technology occupations.
The applicant under express entry pool who receives nomination from the Ontario province gets additional 600 points towards Comprehensive Ranking System score. This further enables them to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in a subsequent draw from the express entry pool.
The candidates who are issued NOIs in the current draw have 45 calendar days to apply for provincial nomination certificate from Ontario.
Meanwhile, French speaking skilled worker stream also issued invitations
The other draw was also conducted on August 9 under Ontario’s Express Entry linked streams –French Speaking Skilled Worker Stream (FSSW).
A total of 14 invitations were issued to the express entry applicants through FSSW stream that targets French-speaking applicants who qualify for either Federal Skilled Worker Class or the Canadian Experience class and also have sufficient English Language abilities.
There is no minimum required CRS score to apply for FSSW.
The applicants who have submitted their express entry profiles between January 1, 2018 and August 9, 2018 were invited to apply in this round.
Since the start of June, Ontario has held nine FSSW invitation rounds issuing NOIs to total of 277 Express Entry applicants.
Ontario has also issued 279 NOIs to express entry candidates through its Skilled Trades Stream that invites skilled workers with a valid express entry profile under Canadian Experience Class and has a sufficient work experience in an eligible skilled trade among other criteria.

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.
