Since the draws are a part of the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP)’s Human Capital Priorities Stream, a job offer is not required.

In order to be considered for selection by the OINP through its Human Capital Priorities Stream, or its other Express Entry streams, the first step for candidates is to submit a profile in the Express Entry pool.

Candidates have to meet federal and provincial eligibility criteria for the Human Capital Priorities Stream before being issued a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence.

Express Entry candidates who are invited to apply for provincial nomination will receive an additional 600 points towards their CRS score, effectively guaranteeing an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence in a subsequent draw from the Express Entry pool.

“The Human Capital Priorities Stream demonstrates how immigration is a necessary means to help fill gaps in the labor market,” said David Cohen, senior partner with the Campbell, Cohen Canadian immigration law firm in Montreal.

“It’s encouraging to see the Province of Ontario facilitating the connection between skilled immigrants and job vacancies.”
