Being one of the populous provinces of Canada, Ontario boasts vibrant multiculturalism, varied landscape & numerous opportunities. Ontario is one of the most preferred destinations for migrants from all over the world. The province has issued Notifications of Interest (NOIs) for selected professions, under the “Tech Draw”, through Ontario’s Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream.

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) sent targeted Notifications of Interest (NOIs) to applicants who would be eligible for Ontario’s Express Entry Human Capital Priorities (HCP) stream on September 28, 2022.

Candidates are eligible to apply if they:

Candidates having work exposure in the following NOC codes, as well as a comprehensive ranking system score (CRS) of 496 or above, were invited by the province:

  1. 0213 – Computer and information systems managers

  3. 2172 – Database analysts and data administrators
  4. 2173 – Software engineers and designers
  5. 2174 – Computer programmer and interactive media developers
  6. 2175 – Web designers and developers

In the scenario where candidates cannot provide proof of employment in one of the acceptable NOC codes, their application may be rejected. If the candidate has received a notification of interest, approaching the program is not essential.



What is Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) & how does it work?

The province’s mechanism for regulating economic immigration is known as the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP). They work with the Canadian government in collaboration with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Overseas employees, foreign students, and individuals with the required education, training, and experience submit nomination requests to the OINP. The OINP identifies and nominates individuals for permanent residency who possess the skills and knowledge needed by the Ontario economy, but the Government of Canada retains final authority to approve those applications.
