Ontario has issued more invitations to apply for a provincial nomination to Express Entry candidates through its Skilled Trades and French-Speaking Skilled Workers streams.
The new invitation rounds took place May 9 and 10 and are the sixth that Ontario has held in each stream since the end of March.
The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) said the 48 Express Entry candidates invited in this round through the Skilled Trades Stream submitted their Express Entry profiles between January 1, 2018, and May 9, 2018.
The 18 invited through the French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream submitted their Express Entry profile between January 1, 2018, and May 10, 2018.
There is no minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score requirement for either streams.
Ontario has now issued 652 Notifications of Interest (NOIs) through Ontario’s Skilled Trades Stream since the start of 2018 and 438 through its French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream.
The province has also issued 2,587 NOIs since the start of 2018 to Express Entry candidates through its Human Capital Priorities Stream.
The OINP says it will continue issuing NOIs to candidates in the federal Express Entry pool who qualify for one of Ontario’s Express Entry streams “on a regular basis.”
