Ontario invited bilingual candidates in the Express Entry system to apply for a provincial nomination which held on June 18.
French-speaking candidates were invited to the latest Ontario Provincial Nominee Program (OINP) draw.
The total number of 143 Express Entry candidates was issued Notifications of Interest (NOI) in this latest draw. The candidates were invited if they had the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores between 424 and 436. The candidates must have the eligibility requirements for Ontario’s Express Entry French-Speaking Skilled Worker (FSSW) stream.
The previous draw which held on June 17 invited candidates who may be eligible for the Express Entry Skilled Trades stream.
The candidates from both of these draws must need to have the profiles in the federal Express Entry system. In this system it manages the applications for the following programs:
The Express Entry candidates are given a score on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) which is based on original human capital factors such as age, work experience, education, and language ability in English or French.
If invited candidates receive the nomination then they will be awarded an additional 600 CRS points toward their overall score which effectively guarantees that they will be issued an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canada permanent residence in a regular federal Express Entry draw.
The French-Speaking Skilled Worker (FSSW) candidates must need to meet the eligibility requirements of the Canadian Experience Class, or the Federal Skilled Worker Program. The FSSW candidates must have a Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) of at least 7 in French and 6 in English, among the other requirements.
These invited candidates will be contacted by the Ontario Immigration Nominee Program (OINP) and these candidates have 45 days to apply online for their provincial nomination.
