Ontario Opens Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream for new Applications, NOIs to Follow

Ontario is welcoming new applications under its Express Entry-aligned Human Capital Priorities stream, part of the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP). The province also expects to begin issuing Notifications of Interest (NOIs) to eligible candidates in the Express Entry pool before the end of 2017.

After receiving a NOI and registering on Ontario’s online system, invited candidates in the Express Entry pool are able to submit an application for an enhanced provincial nomination certificate.

If and when this nomination is approved, the candidate may then receive 600 additional points under the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) and an Invitation To Apply (ITA) for permanent residence during a subsequent draw from the pool.
