Province of Ontario issues a total of 703 invitations to the Express Entry candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence on the latest provincial draw held on May 13.
Invitations were issued to the candidates who were having work experience in one of the following six tech occupations:
Express Entry candidates who were invited had the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score between 421 and 451 points. This is the lowest CRS requirement for the program’s history, since its first provincial draw held in July 2019.
For the express entry candidates who received a provincial nomination in the tech draw, they are given a major boost of 600 CRS points, effectively guaranteeing an Invitation to Apply (ITA) to apply for Canada PR Visa to the Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
Candidates who received an NOI or were issued an invitation from Ontario must be eligible for OINP – Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program’s Human Capital Priorities Stream.
OINP conducts its tech draws through its Human Capital Priorities Stream, which allows the province to search for skilled immigrants in the federal government’s express entry pool. Having a job offer is not a requirement to be eligible for this OINP’s immigration stream.
The purpose of these draws is to specifically search for candidates eligible for Express Entry who have at least one year of continuous full-time paid work experience, or the equivalent in part-time paid work, in one of the six professions in the technology sector.
In conjunction with the recent PNP-specific Express Entry draws, this draw made it possible to select even more technicians as part of the PNP. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, some Canadian tech companies are hiring and are about to contribute to Canada’s economic recovery.
