OINP HCP - Points for Relatives

Discussion in 'Provincial Nomination Program Immigration' started by define, Sep 10, 2018.

  1. Hi,

    Under the OINP HCP Guide, it states that 5 points are awarded to applicants for relatives who are permanent residents or Canadian citizens.

    I have a doubt whether I can claim points for my distant relatives. I have a cousin brother who is Canadian citizen and also have a niece (daughter of my cousin sister).

    Can I claim points?

  2. Please respond to my post; I am in hurry and do not have much time left to apply.
  3. Sorry, you cannot claim points for cousin or distant niece (daughter of cousin). Rgds.

    • a Canadian citizen or permanent resident
    This relative must be a:

    • parent
    • grandparent
    • child
    • grandchild
    • your or your spouse’s sibling (child of your or your spouse’s parent)
    • your or your spouse’s aunt or uncle (by blood or marriage)
    • your or your spouse’s niece or nephew (grandchild of your or your spouse’s parent)
