First Tech Draw in Ontario is a highlight of this week-invited 1,623 Express Entry candidates

Under the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP), the province of Ontario invited prospective newcomers under one of the Ontario’s Express Entry streams: Human Capital Priorities (HCP) stream.

On July 12, 2019, the targeted candidates with work experience in the following NOC codes: 

  • 2173   Software engineers and designers
  • 2174   Computer programmer and interactive media developers
  • 2147   Computer engineers
  • 2175   Web designers and developers
  • 2172   Database analysts and data administrators
  • 0213   Computer and information systems managers

The candidates with CRS score as low as 439 were invited. The scores ranging from 439 to 458 were the pick for the tech draw. A total of 1,623 candidates with work experience in the tech occupations were invited from the draw.

Under the new tech draws, the OINP will be filtering and finding a candidate from the Express Entry pool who may:

  • Satisfy the requirements under HCP stream
  • Have work experience in one of the targeted NOC codes

The candidate already in the pool may receive a Notification of Interest (NOI) to apply under the stream and achieve permanent residence in Canada.

The focus of the stream is to help ICT businesses to hire global talent from around the world. The Express Entry will not only provide a fast-track way to achieve permanent residence to the candidates but also meet the labour market needs.

NOIs issued in 2019 to date under OINP

  • Human Capital Priorities Stream – 4188
  • French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream – 549
  • Skilled Trades Stream – 732
