OINP Human Capital Priorities Stream
The Human Capital Priorities Stream allows Ontario to select the candidates who meet the requirements of the province from the federal Express Entry pool and nominate them for permanent residence in Canada. To be eligible under the stream, the candidate must first qualify for either the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) or the Canadian Experience Class managed under the Express Entry.
It is not possible for the candidates to apply directly under the Human Capital Priorities Stream. They must first receive a Notification of Interest (NOI) from the OINP. While selecting the candidates, OINP targets those candidates who have the minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score specified for the stream and those who meet other criteria of the stream.
The candidates who receive the NoI can apply for provincial nomination online within 45 days. The candidates who successfully apply for and receive provincial nomination will obtain 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System scores that would effectively guarantee them an invitation to apply for permanent residence in Canada in the subsequent Express Entry draw.
