Ontario’s OINP is linked to the Express Entry (EE) System. As a result, the province picks qualifying and highly skilled applicants from the EE pool. If you have an ITA in this draw, then it means you:
- Hold an active EE profile.
- Applied to 1 of the EE sub-stream such as:
- Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
- Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
- Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
- Also, meet Human Capital Factors:
- Work Experience
- Language Skills
- Besides, applied to the OINP EE Human Capital Priorities Stream.
- Finally, have a CRS score between 455 – 600.
Once you get a nomination against your EE profile you will get an extra 600 CRS score. This automatically increases your scope of getting an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residency in Canada.
Submission of a correct and error-free application with all supporting documents will ensure you get a quick and easy Canada visa.
