Ontario reduces CRS cutoff in new PNP draw

Ontario pnp invitation

On February 22, Ontario invited 773 Express Entry candidates with CRS scores of 455 and above working in targeted occupations to apply for a provincial nomination. This is good news for candidates who had a score of 455+ and were waiting for PNP nomination from Ontario.

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) extended invitations to individuals who may qualify for the Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream (HCP). Candidates must have a profile in the Express Entry system with a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 455 to 600.

The most points that an Express Entry candidate can receive is 600 without a provincial nomination. Candidates with a CRS score higher than the maximum range were unable to apply for the nomination prior to this draw. Candidates with scores of more than 467 were not invited to apply for an Ontario nomination in all of 2021.

This is good news for candidates who had a score of more than 467 and were still not able to get a nomination from Ontario.
