How does OINP nomination help your Canada immigration application?
Applying for a provincial nomination is not the same as applying for Canadian permanent residence. Rather a nomination effectively means the province is guaranteeing that the federal government will issue you an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence in one of its Express Entry draws.
Candidates who received OINP nomination get an additional 600 points toward their federal Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. The additional 600 CRS points virtually guarantee that the candidate will receive an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence in an Express Entry draw. This is why candidates with lower CRS scores often seek a PNP nomination because the extra 600 points is more than enough to guarantee an invitation in any Express Entry draw.
How does the federal Express Entry immigration system work?
In order to enter the federal Express Entry pool, candidates must first create an Express Entry profile. You must meet the eligibility requirements for one of the three federal government economic immigration programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Class; the Federal Skilled Trades Class; and the Canadian Experience Class.
A job offer is not required to enter or be selected from the Express Entry pool although additional CRS points are awarded to those who already have a job.
Based on the information you entered in your federal Express Entry profile you will be given a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score and placed into a pool of other candidates ranked. Your CRS is a numerical value, out of a possible 1,200, determined by your core human capital. This is essentially your age, work experience, educational background, ability to adapt and language skills.
A limited number of candidates with the highest CRS points in the pool are issued Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for permanent residence. IRCC issues ITAs through regular federal Express Entry draws which typically take place every two weeks.
Your 600 points from the provincial nomination gives you 50% of the possible ,1200 CRS points available in any draw. Virtually all nominated candidates find it easy to acquire the remaining points for a draw’s cut-off score from their core human capital.
IRCC will issue qualified candidates from the Express Entry pool an invitation to apply for permanent residence. After your application is approved and you complete the landing process, you will officially become a Canadian permanent resident.
