OINP Express Entry Draw

Ontario Invited 1052 Candidates in the Latest OINP Express Entry Draw

In a recent development, the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program OINP Express Entry draw held on November 30 made waves by extending 1,052 invitations for provincial nominations, marking a significant event after a hiatus of more than two months since the last draw on September 26, 2023.

Express Entry Draw Draw Highlights

The draw specifically targeted Express Entry profiles with expertise in one of 42 healthcare-related occupations under the Human Capital Priorities Stream (HCP) within the OINP. Candidates with Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores falling between 404 and 430 were the focal point of this draw, receiving or having already received invitations for provincial nominations from Ontario.

Contextualizing the Draw

Since the last Express Entry draw by the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) on October 26, the OINP took the initiative to fill the gap by conducting a draw. The preceding IRCC draw on October 26, also centered on healthcare, invited 3,600 candidates with a CRS score of 431 or above. Given that candidates above 430 might receive direct invitations from IRCC, the OINP strategically aligned with the reference draw and extended invitations to candidates below that threshold.

A Unique Opportunity Amid IRCC’s Draw Drought

While the IRCC’s Express Entry draw drought persists, the OINP’s proactive approach stands out. The draw, specifically targeting Express Entry profiles, brings a ray of hope to candidates seeking pathways to permanent residency.

Focus on Healthcare Occupations

The draw spotlighted 42 healthcare occupations, showcasing the OINP’s emphasis on bolstering the healthcare sector. From Managers in health care to Medical radiation technologists, the range of occupations reflects a strategic approach to address specific skill needs in the province.
