Employer Job Offer: In-Demand Skills Stream draws

The OINP Employer Job Offer: In-Demand Skills Stream conducts draws periodically throughout the year. The frequency of the draws can vary depending on the needs of the program and the number of applications in the system.

OINP typically announces in advance the dates of the upcoming draws and the number of invitations to be issued. However, the minimum score required for an invitation to apply (ITA) can change from one draw to the next, as it is based on the number of candidates in the pool and the program's needs.

It's important to note that meeting the minimum score does not guarantee an ITA, as other factors such as program quotas and eligibility requirements can also come into play. Additionally, OINP reserves the right to adjust the point values assigned to various factors or the minimum scores required for ITAs at any time.
