Ontario Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream: Now Accepting Applications

Update: Effective Nov 7, 2017, Ontario’s Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream has reached the registration intake limit and no additional registrations for this stream can be accepted. According to their website: The OINP is monitoring the intake of applications with respect to the limits of Ontario’s federal nomination allocation, and will determine if any more applications can be accepted for this stream.

Effective November 3, 2017, the Ontario immigration office is now accepting applications for the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream:

To apply, applicants must have a valid Notification of Interest (NOI) from Ontario and have a profile registered with the Canada Express Entry system. Guidelines to apply include:

  • A valid profile in the Express Entry (EE) system
  • You must have received a Notification of Interest (NOI) from Ontario that is still valid
  • Note:
    • Notifications of Interest (NOI) issued prior to November 1, 2017 are valid for six months or to December 31, 2017 (whichever comes first). This means that you must submit an application for the HCP Stream in the OINP e-Filing Portal within six months of receiving your NOI from Ontario.
    • NOIs issued after November 1, 2017 are valid for 45 days or to December 31, 2017 (whichever comes first). This means that if you received your NOI after November 1, 2017, you must submit an application for the HCP in the OINP e-Filing Portal within 45 days of receiving your NOI from Ontario.
    • All NOIs issued in 2017 are no longer valid after December 31, 2017.

If your application is approved after the OINP reaches its nomination allocation for 2017, your nomination certificate will be issued in early 2018.

After two attempts to manage spousal sponsorship visa on our own, we decided that it was worth the money and ease of mind to hire a professional. I'm so glad we did! With Ackah Law, all of the processes were made clear and every detail correct. Communication was timely and it was rarely a challenge to get a live call or meeting that worked with our busy schedules. It's expensive to retain a lawyer, of course, but for the many ways that the Canadian immigration systems have changed in the past few years, a good law firm is indispensable. My only feedback would be to expand their business to offer a start-to-settlement concierge service, because the paperwork doesn't end when you land! :)
