Ontario hosted a third technical draw this year, inviting immigrant applicants who had work experience in one of six in-demand occupations.
The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) held its biggest draw of the year on July 29. A total of 1,288 invitations were sent to applicants who may be eligible for the Human Capital Priorities Stream of Express Entry. They needed a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score between 463 and 477 to be invited.
While applicants did not need a job offer to receive an invitation, they did need at least one year of work experience in one of the following occupations:
They also had to have a profile in the Express Entry system. Those who have received the Notice of Interest (NOI) from Ontario now have 45 calendar days to submit their application for Provincial Nomination.
If they receive the Ontario nomination, they will automatically earn an additional 600 CRS points for their overall score. This prize will allow them to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence in a subsequent Express Entry draw. This applies to anyone nominated under a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) in Canada.
How to get an Invitations in OINP Tech Draw?
The first step in becoming eligible for an invitation through the OINP Technical Prize Draw is to create a profile in Canada’s Express Entry system.
Express Entry is an application management system for three federal economy class immigration programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the Canadian Experience Class. The Ontario Human Capital First stream recognizes applicants from the Federal Skilled Worker Program and the Canadian Experience Class.
Express Entry applicants are ranked according to the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) based on their education, work experience, age, and language skills in English or French.
OINP technical draws take advantage of the Express Entry pool of candidates, inviting eligible technology workers to apply for an Ontario provincial nomination.
Once the process is complete, applicants will have the opportunity to settle into their tech careers in Ontario.
“Through this dedicated approach, we are helping to make it easier for tech companies to recruit top talent from around the world,” the OINP said in a press release.
