Ontario PNP Nominations likely to open on 25th November 2016 – CRS to go higher

Hello Readers,

Ontario stopped issuing PNP nominations quite a while back with a declaration that it may be starting to issue new nominations towards the year end. Well, there are some speculations that nominations will resume towards the end of November 2016 (read specifically 25th November 2016) with a higher CRS score.

It is expected that Canadian Govt. will impose some new regulations and implement changes towards the calculations of CRS scores, where students with Canadian education will be allotted additional points which will add up to their CRS scores. The scores may be in range of 5-20 depending upon the education completed. This in turn will raise the CRS bar towards the higher level of 500. Our sources indicate that if these changes are implemented CRS may well remain above the level of 500 till the middle of year 2017 unless the immigration targets are changed and Canada issues higher number of nominations for each upcoming draw this year until May 2017.

The backlogs have been a huge headache for the aspirants and there has been an uproar amongst international students waiting in Canada to get invitation in the express entry system.

Another important fact to consider here is the Ontario government is contemplating the idea of raising the minimum cut-off CRS score to 450 for the nomination which was 400 before the nominations were closed. This is being considered to make sure the nomination targets are filled up at a convenient pace and to give preference to those who have Canadian education.

Ontario has been very slow lately to issue nominations for candidates who have filled in their applications before the system was paused. All of these proposed changes are still under consideration and if there are any changes to these thoughts or any new propositions, we will integrate those changes here.

Let us know your thoughts about these changes whether positive or negative.

Cheers

    Rising or not, the cut-off CRS threshold was only a requirement for OINP Human Capital Priorities Stream right? The French-speaking Skilled Worker Stream will not be affected thereby?

      We also believe that the French speaking stream should remain unaffected, however knowing the fact that OINP is reconsidering higher CRS, it’s possible to have new laws for French Speaking Stream too.

        Rachel,
        Do you have any inside info on when Ontario plans to resume sending NOIs for 2017?
        They were supposed to get their quota from the federal government in Nov, but I don’t see anything yet.

        Thanks!

    Do you think that the master’s graduate stream with no job offer, under oinp, will continue? Or is there a chance they could scrap that stream altogether?

      It will continue at least for now, if they had to scrap it, they would have done it already. It’s not related to Express entry, it’s a different stream altogether.

      Ontario has nothing related to in demand. They handpick and deliver invitations via EE profile.

    Hi There,

    Is the profile under “Job Bank Registration” matters for OINP in EE? I mean how much does it matter and how in EE?

      EE job bank registration is mandatory and OINP will pick only approved EE profiles.
      So JOB BANK IS NEEDED.

    When would the Human Capital Priorities Stream resume?
    I have an EE with job verification code and CRS is 413. What are my options with Human Capital Priorities Stream? Just wait for the resuming of ITA from Ontario?
    Thanks.
