To fit the bill for the March 3 OINP draw, applicants must submit Express Entry profiles between March 3, 2020, and March 3, 2021. Applicants should have at least a Canadian Language Benchmark of 7 in French and 6 in English to qualify.
Welcomed applicants currently have 45 schedule days to send in their application for a provincial selection from Ontario.

About Canada’s Provincial Nominee Programs
Under the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs), Canada’s territorial and regional governments like Ontario can choose people to dwell in the region/region as lasting occupants to meet the region’s financial and work needs.
Applicants who have made a profile in the government Express Entry framework and have likewise applied for and gotten a selection from a territory’s PNP are granted an extra 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score at the federal level, on top of the points that they have in the administrative Express Entry pool. The extra 600 CRS points essentially ensure that the applicant will challenge applying for a Canadian permanent residence under the government Express Entry framework.
