What is Human Capital Priorities stream?

Ontario’s Express Entry Human Capital Priorities stream is an immigration stream under the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP).

It gives foreign workers with the required skilled work experience, language abilities and education the opportunity to apply to permanently live and work in Ontario.

Before you can apply online to be nominated for permanent residence by the Ontario government, you must have a valid profile in Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada’s (IRCC’s) Express Entry system and receive a Notification of Interest from Ontario.

If you are nominated, your next step is to apply to the federal government through IRCC. They make the final decision on who becomes a permanent resident.
