 The eligible candidates under the Human Capital Priorities (HCP) stream getting eligible to receive an invite from Ontario provincial nomination will receive an additional 600 CRS points which would assure the candidate’s chances of getting an invite from the CIC to make further application for permanent residence to Canada.

Ontario has made an announcement on the above list as on 4th July 2017 and has left an anticipation that it may continue on targeting ICT occupations from the express entry pool while for the non ICT work experience, the previous criteria of application would be followed. As per the recent report shared by the state government, Ontario would be tens of thousands of ICT professionals to work in Ontario in the coming years and hence ICT would be the main criteria of target for Ontario to make such exceptions.

Irrespective of an ICT or non ICT profile a candidate to get a province nomination must have an express entry profile created as that is the only way Ontario can pick up applicants to send an notification of interest.
