Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program – OINP held a new tech draw on October 15, inviting Express Entry candidates to apply for a provincial nomination.
OINP has issued targeted notices of interest to applicants who may be eligible for the Human Capital Priorities stream of Express Entry.
A total of 772 principal applicants received notices of intent for the technical draw. Express Entry applicants needed a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score between 462 and 470 to be invited. They also had to have work experience in one of the following professions:
Applicants who wanted to get an invitation did not need a job offer, but they did need at least one year of work experience in one of these tech professions.
They also had to have a valid profile in the Express Entry program. Those who have received the Notification of Interest (NOI) from Ontario now have 45 calendar days to submit their application for provincial nomination.
If they receive a provincial nomination from Ontario, they will automatically earn an additional 600 CRS points for their overall CRS score. This many scores 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 Nomination Program (PNP) in Canada.
This is the fourth technical draw of the year in Ontario. The largest tech draw in 2020 was held on July 29, when 1,288 Express Entry candidates were invited to apply for a provincial nomination.
Eligibility for Ontario Tech Draw
To get an invitation through the OINP tech draw candidates are required to create a profile in Canada’s Express Entry program.
Express Entry program, introduced in 2015, 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 Priority Stream recognizes applicants from the Federal Skilled Worker Program and the Canadian Experience Class.
All the applicants in the express entry program are ranked according to the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) based on their education, work experience, age, and language proficiency in English or French.
OINP tech draws select eligible tech immigrants from the Express Entry pool, 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.
