Ontario PNP issues 754 Express Entry candidates in its latest draw
All candidates invited for provincial nominations had working experience in 10 targeted occupations.
In its latest draw on 2nd March 2021, Ontario PNP released provincial nomination 754 Express Entry applicants.
All invited candidates had profiles in the Express Entry Pool with Comprehensive Ranking Scores (CRS) ranging between 463 to 467.
The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) invited only those candidates who qualified for the Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream (HCP). This Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) provided selected candidates a chance to move to Canada and launch their career in one of the most preferred provinces of Canada.
In Ontario's latest draw, only 10 occupations were targeted. Express Entry candidates with experience in those ten occupations received a provincial nomination. However, these 10 profiles are similar to the previous draw on 2nd February. Here is a list of NOCs and occupations Ontario considered this time.
Banking, credit and other investment managers (NOC 0122);
Advertising, marketing and public relations managers (NOC 0124);
Other business services managers (NOC 0125);
Corporate sales managers (NOC 0601);
Financial auditors and accountants (NOC 1111);
Financial and investment analysts (NOC 1112);
Human resources professionals (NOC 1121);
Professional occupations in business management consulting (NOC 1122)
Registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses (NOC 3012); and
Business development officers and marketing researchers and consultants (NOC 4163).
Applicants to the Invited Express Entry must have at least one year's professional experience in one of these professions to receive a provincial nomination. When nominated by this or any other PNP connected to the Express Entry, they will be jumped into the front line to obtain their Canada Permanent residency Invitation to Apply (ITA).
In 2020, Ontario invited 6,716 Express Entry candidates to apply for a provincial nomination via the HCP stream. This was the highest share of all PNP-linked Express-Entry appointments issued by Ontario last year.
