      What is the OINP Points Calculator?

      The minimum points required for the Ontario Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) can vary depending on the specific stream or category you are applying through. Ontario has different streams and categories within its PNP, each with its own eligibility requirements and minimum points thresholds.

      the minimum points required for the Express Entry-aligned Human Capital Priorities Stream, one of the popular streams under Ontario’s PNP, generally depended on the specific draws conducted by the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP). In these draws, candidates with higher Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores in the federal Express Entry pool would receive Notifications of Interest (NOIs) from Ontario.

      To be eligible for the Human Capital Priorities Stream, you typically needed to have a profile in the federal Express Entry system and meet Ontario’s criteria, which included having a certain CRS score, work experience, and language proficiency. The specific minimum CRS score required would vary from draw to draw, and candidates with the highest scores would be invited to apply.
