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 Nominee Program 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.
Till now, Ontario has issued 3,534 NOIs through Human Capital Priorities Stream in 2018 with an additional 931 NOIs issued through French Speaking Skilled Worker Stream and another 1,006 issued through the skilled trades stream.
