The Human Capital Priorities stream, Ontario, is a Provincial Nominee Program stream quite popular for immigration to Canada. It is aligned with Express Entry and will now accept applications. This immigration information was announced by authorities in Ontario. It is expected that OINP will issue new Notifications of Interest to the eligible candidates present in the pool of Express Entry before the year 2017 closes.

It is a major stream of the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program, Success here helps the candidate to receive 600 Comprehensive Ranking System and an Invitation to Apply for PR in a subsequent draw from the pool of Express Entry.

Ontario’s HCP stream being a PNP stream has been aligned to the Express Entry and works on a passive model. The process is not based on first-come, first-serve model and does not require an Expression of Interest.

Eligible Candidates, coming under the criteria of HCP stream had been issued NOIs in July 2017.
