Ontario Provincial Nominee Program is also now open for CRS 400 and above. The OINP is now identifying qualified applicants from the federal government s Express Entry Pool and will issue Notifications of Interest to applicants that meet the criteria.

  1. Have a valid profile in the Express Entry Pool
  2. Qualify for either the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) or the Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
  3. Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) Score: A minimum of 400 points in the CRS of IRCC s Express Entry System

We notice a positive trend right from the start of this year, January 2017 and with Ontario re-opening their Ontario Immigration Nominee Program / Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream, it is highly encouraging to submit your application into Express Entry Pool. This is the right time to initiate your Canada migration process as the turnaround time may be lesser than envisaged. And indeed, there is reason to believe that the CRS threshold may continue to decrease.
