Ontario Invites 954 Express Entry Candidates With Tech Experience


Ontario invited 954 Express Entry candidates with eligible work experience to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence with CRS scores between 460 and 472. The province of Ontario issues NOIs to express entry candidates to invite them to apply for provincial nomination. With a provincial nomination, their scores jump by 600 points and they are prioritized for an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence.

Candidates selected this draw also needed work experience in one of the following six occupations:

1. NOC 2173 Software engineers and designers 
2. NOC 2174 Computer programmers and interactive media developers 
3. NOC 2147 Computer engineers 
4. NOC 2175 Web designers and developers 
5. NOC 2172 Database analysts and data administrators 
6. NOC 0213 Computer and information systems managers 

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program OINP launched Tech Draws in the summer of 2019. These draws were created to help Ontario meet the growing labour needs of the province’s tech sector.

How Tech Draws work:

OINP Tech Draws are conducted through the province’s Human Capital Priorities immigration stream, which allows the OINP to search the Federal Express Entry pool for candidates who meet the stream’s eligibility requirements.

A  job offer is not required in order to be eligible for the Human Capital Priorities Stream.

The purpose of these draws is to search specifically for Express Entry candidates who meet the Human Capital Priorities Stream’s eligibility requirements and have at least one year of continuous paid full-time work experience.

NOC stands for National Occupational Classification, which determines an occupation’s skill level and skill type.
